Photos of the Houston Black Firefighter's candlelight vigil and feeding the homeless initiative


The Houston Black Firefighters Association is continuing their call for a zero tolerance policy based upon a string of racist and sexist acts that have been haunting the Houston Fire Department this year. On Sunday, September 20, they joined forces with Deric Muhammad, Kathy Griffin of Mayoral Candidate Peter Brown's Office, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., and more at a candlelight vigil for victims of hate, racism and discrimination. They also fed the homeless with food donated by Peter Brown.

Featured speakers included Brother Deric, Ms. Griffin, Nation of Islam Student Minister Robert Muhammad and Otis Jordan, president of the Black Firefighters Association. Mr. Jordan recently became a candidate for Houston City Council District D.

Here are photo highlights of the candlelight vigil
