State Comptroller Nancy Wyman today announced the results of her annual Black History Essay Contest. This annual event is open to high school juniors and seeks to explore facts about black history that are not well known. It is sponsored by the Office of the State Comptroller and with the support of Fleet Bank and People's Bank.

"It gives me great pleasure to recognize these talented young people," Wyman said. "I am reminded of the words of James Baldwin: "You think your pains and heartbreaks are unprecedented in the history of the world, but then you read."
