The Housing Authority of Plainfield (HAP) recently celebrated Black History Month with residents and the greater Plainfield community during an event that also raised funds for student scholarships. 

The March 1 event at Richmond Towers was sponsored by The Plainfield Culture and Heritage Foundation, HAP, Premier Community Development Corporation, and the Joanne Hollis Gardens and Richmond Towers Residents Associations.  

Guest speaker Pastor Mae Belin of Rose of Sharon Community Church in Plainfield led the discussion titled “Black History Month 2024: Black Resistance.”  

Proceeds benefited the HAP/PCDC Scholarship Fund supporting students in the Plainfield community. Scholarships range from $500 to $1,000 and are awarded to students seeking to attend college, university, or post-secondary educational institutions.  

“Every February I place great importance on taking the time to honor Black History Month,” said HAP Executive Director Randall M. Wood. “As an organization deeply connected with the Black community, all of us at the Housing Authority of Plainfield are celebrating the legacy of the incredible Black leaders who came before us. Acknowledging their accomplishments and understanding our past helps us shape the future of American history.”
