Photos: 30th Annual Black History Parade

Music and fun dominated a chunk of Fair Oaks on Saturday morning for the Black History Parade in Altadena.

City leaders, school bands and dancers joined fraternities, sororities and fellow Altadena residents for the 30th Annual Black History Parade on Saturday morning. If you took pictures at the parade, please add them to our gallery.

When is the white History Parade?

Jim, are you kidding me? We celebrate Black History in the month of February to remember all of the wonderful black people past and present and to celebrate their importance in our lives. Rosa Parks, Dr. King and Malcolm X to name a few. We as a Nation, talk about "white" history every day of the year. Our children need to learn and respect the history of all races not just that of the whites.

Throwing my virtual cowboy hat in the air for my personal favorites -- the Buffalo Soldiers. Beautiful horses, great riding, and a good show, all around!

@Lisa H: The Rose Parade's purpose is not to celebrate white history.

Personally, I think race based events/ programs/ scholarships/ etc/ etc do more to divide us than unite us. Just my opinion, though.
