There is absolutely no question how important and influential the late George K. Arthur was in the city of Buffalo, a community activist and leader with an impeccable reputation. On Tuesday night, Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown paid tribute to George K. Arthur.

According to, Buffalo City Hall was "Lit" literally, Mayor Brown directed the dome at the top of City Hall to be lit white in honor of the late George K. Arthur and also called on Buffalos Landmark Illumination Team (LIT) to also light their structures in honor of Arthur's memory.

George K. Arthur was a beacon of hope to the city of Buffalo, which is why this first of its kind tribute is fitting. He fought for equity, opportunity, and fairness every day of his life, and the city of Buffalo is a better place because of his efforts. We must ensure that future generations never forget George K. Arthur's legacy.

I can personally speak to how great of a person he was, I remember, not only meeting him but also writing stories about him in school. In my opinion, this is a great gesture, by Mayor Byron Brown and the City of Buffalo. I'm sure that residents here in our community will always remember the late great George K. Arthur.
