Their day in court

Three cheers for the Kings County Courts, which welcomed girls from the Zeta Phi Beta Sorority for a Black History Month celebration at the courthouse on Feb. 22.

The event was the ninth of 13 put on by the court to celebrate the theme of the month, Black Migrants.

Members of the sorority’s Archonette Club were tasked with answering the question, “Have the United States and its citizens met the goal of the Voting Rights Act of 1965?,” according to the group’s social-media recap of the event.

Sorority members gave speeches answering the question before audience members, who included several Brooklyn judges. The group considered the event a success, offering appreciation to the organizers of the event.

“Special thanks to Hon. Deborah Dowling, Hon. Carolyn Walker-Diallo, Hon. Cenceria P. Edwards, Hon. Lisa Ottley, and Hon. Robin Sheares, for creating this amazing opportunity of empowerment for our youth,” the sorority said.
