WAKR and the Ray Horner Morning Show are featuring a member of the black community in Akron who have made an impact by their courage and leadership.

Al Bragg was a long time captain in the Akron Fire Department, and he talked about his journey in entering a field that, at the time, was not populated by many African-Americans. Bragg mentioned how Akron, as well as other fire departments, are committed to ensuring diversity and growing with the times.

Akron’s Celebration of Black History this month is brought to you by the Akron-Summit County Public Library and the Metro Regional Transit Authority.
