Notable Black Leaders in the Angeles Chapter
February is Black History Month, and we take this moment to celebrate the contributions of Black leaders to the Sierra Club’s Angeles Chapter. Be sure to also read about the first Black members in the chapter and the challenges of integration. The following members have received Chapter leadership awards, which we highlight here.
Stagalee "Stag" Thurston Brown was awarded the Outings Service award in 1979 and with the prestigious Chester Versteeg Outings Award in 2003, and the Extraordinary Achievement Award in 2014, along with Bob “Cat” Thompson, and Joe Young.
