Merlita Bryan is the Councillor for the Arboretum Ward in Nottingham. She was the Sheriff of Nottingham from 2012-2013 and became the Lord Mayor of Nottingham from 2013-2014.
Her vision first started off in 2011 when she launched the Black Achieving Males Awards (BAM). Over the first three years she awarded black men in the Nottingham community for the work that they did and how they protrayed themselves in the community. This year she wanted to award and promote not only positive males, but also females as they too show positive steps to take in life.
Please support her in her journey of making events like this grow every year to promote positive role models to the younger generation.
