Alvin K. Brunson Day
By city council proclamation, Friday will be decreed as “Alvin Kirby Brunson Day” in Baltimore, according to his sister, Brenda.
Brunson lost his life on March 30 when the house he was working on at 562 Wilson St. collapsed. He had hoped to renovate the building into a museum of Pennsylvania Avenue’s Black history. There were bizarre circumstances surrounding the tragedy.
Brenda is angling to have the proclamation read at noon in front of her brother’s former residence, 541 Wilson St. She says the proclamation idea came to her very recently, and that she’s pleased that 11th district City Councilman William Cole agreed to get it done in time for Nov. 14th.
Friday would have been Alvin Kirby Brunson’s 50th birthday.
