Originating in 1962, the Freddy Fixer Parade is nationally recognized as the oldest Black American parade in the northeast. As such, it is incumbent upon our community to honor this distinctive heritage and to always remember to continue to pay homage to the founders, the late Dr. Frederick F. Smith, Edna Carnegie-Baker, and Dr. Charles Twyman. Their vision is one of collective solidarity toward the common goal of neighborhood beautification that culminates into a yearly celebration through the Elm City Freddy Fixer Parade. Securing our own legacy through this consistent, constructive and harmonious display of our cultural norms, values and ethics will be the impetus that conveys the story of our history we want told for many generations to come.
