February is Black History month and police joined other Houstonians with a celebration in southwest Houston. Families came out to enjoy food, games and learn about history on Fondren near West Bellfort in southwest Houston this afternoon. The theme was "Celebrating our Community Educators."

HPD brought its mobile station with recruiters on hand to talk about careers in law enforcement. A live band provided entertainment. More musical acts were expected, but the rainy weather put a damper on those plans.
