Longtime historian Mrs. Alberta Kearney of Perris was chosen as Grand Marshall of the Black History Parade. The parade was a tremendous success according to the fifty plus entries that paraded down Perris Boulevard on a sunny day.
One lady who watched but did not want to be identified, said it was a great day to relax and watch while basking in the sun. Mrs. Kearney is the founder of the Kearney Museum where such notable visitors have included U. S. Representative Maxine Waters. Mrs. Kearney has been a community activist to improve this part of the Inland Empire, said Vernicia Davis Jordan, parade chairman.
