Some special members of Lubbock's African American community were honored Saturday.
This afternoon, the African American History Month program and reception was held at the Patterson Branch Library.
This year's theme was celebrating noble men and women of valor.
Law enforcement officers from Lubbock's Police Department and Sheriff's Office were honored Saturday, including Councilman Floyd Price who served for both LPD and the sheriff's office.
"When I started at this program back in '65, there were only three African Americans on LPD - counting myself and one over at Lubbock Country Sheriff's Department," Price said.
All African Americans who serve in Lubbock law enforcement were honored on Saturday.
