Danville honors local African American figures for Black History Month

Danville is honoring local African American figures who have left their mark on the city, with a bus wrap commemorating black history month.

Unlike the transit system’s previous black history bus wraps, which honored state and national figures as well, this wrap only features local figures.

There are 13 notable people on it, who live in Danville or have lived there.

The city says the individuals they picked have shaped the community and inspired generations with their leadership.

“Their unwavering commitment to progress. Each figure encapsulates the spirit of excellence and determination that best defines our city,” Mayor Alonzo Jones said.

The full list of people featured on the bus can be found here.
