Earlier this week, the NBA’s Miami Heat held their Ninth Annual Black History Month Challenge at the AmericanAirlines Arena. Students from two local schools — Miami Central High School (Miami-Dade) and Dillard High School (Broward) — competed against each other by answering Black History trivia questions.

This year, members from AFSCME Locals 199, 1184, 1542, 2862 and 3292 helped to sponsor the event and were in attendance to participate in a short speaking program highlighting AFSCME’s I AM 2018 initiative.
