Black Liberated Arts Center (BLAC), Inc. will host an evening of recognition and celebration for first responders and essential workers on May 8th at the Embassy Suite Hotel, located at 3233 NW Expressway in Oklahoma City, OK. Churches and organizations in the community have been requested to nominate up to four people who will be recognized for their untiring efforts
during the COVID-19 Pandemic. The nominee and a guest will be treated to dinner and an evening of celebration and treats, according to Anita Arnold, executive director of BLAC, Inc. Nominations are due by March 31st. “Black, Inc. is keenly aware of the suffering of families during these difficult days,” said Arnold. “Many people in the healthcare field have made tremendous sacrifices that carried great risk. “During these times, our
institution worked diligently to secure funding for Protective Equipment for the safety of everyone consistent with COVID guidelines issued by the Center for Disease Control (CDC). We are prepared with the latest state of the art no-contact temperature checking equipment, sanitizers, and mask. The Embassy Suites Hotel is continuously sanitized from top to bottom throughout. Upon inspection, we noticed as our Executive Board
toured the facility each room is sanitized and sealed after anyone enters and leaves each room whether looking, cleaning, or occupying. We were pleased,” Arnold continued. BLAC, Inc. will reschedule the event, if the pandemic worsens as indicated by the Oklahoma County Health Department.
