Columbus Police Unveil Black History Month Cruiser, “AFRICA 1”

Share This Post

The Columbus Police Department has unveiled a special edition Martin Luther King Jr.-themed police cruiser in honor of Black History Month. Originally named “History 1,” the car has been renamed “AFRICA 1” after critics accused the department of being tone-deaf.

Chief Elaine Bryant said they were receptive to feedback and hope the new video strikes a better tone.

“We heard you. We messed up; now we’re trying again,” Bryant said. “I believe our new Black History Month cruiser reveal video does a better job of building a bridge to the black community. I hope they will forgive us.”
