He's been at the forefront for the battle for equal rights and has stood for improving the quality of life in our community. Van Robinson is a man we should all hold in the highest esteem.

It is only fitting that this name is placed upon the Pan African Village since he was instrumental in bringing it to the Fair. Click here to hear what he says about receiving this great honor.
