The Black Heritage Planning Committee is a subcommittee of Black Affairs Advisory Board. It is comprised of volunteer Miami-Dade County employees who plan and implements activities that highlight the rich cultural contributions of the African Diaspora. The Pillars Awards recognizes people from the community who often work behind the scenes and rarely recognized. The committee feels that these people are "Pillars" because without their efforts many programs, peoples and community organizations" impact would be lessened.
