MAYOR TOM BRADLEY PROCLAIMS 'ARSENIO HALL DAY,' TUESDAY, JULY 21
 Arsenio Hall Dedicates Former Crack House to
 the First A.M.E. Church as a Youth Facility
 LOS ANGELES, July 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Talk-show host Arsenio Hall will be honored when Mayor Tom Bradley proclaims Tuesday, July 21, "Arsenio Hall Day," in Los Angeles. The ceremony will take place at the unveiling of a new youth facility to be christened "Unity Hall." The former crack house, which Hall purchased last year and renovated, will be donated to the Rev. Cecil L. Murray and the First A.M.E. Church in South Central Los Angeles.
 Says Hall, "The time has come for all of us who live in Los Angeles to embrace and support our neighbors, wherever they may reside. South Central is an important part of this neighborhood and I can only hope that the youth center encourages others to make strong efforts in rebuilding this historic area to its full potential."
 "Unity Hall" will serve as a multipurpose educational, social and spiritual center providing the community and its youth a safe and positive environment, in which to nurture their advancement and development. The 12-room center will be open daily and a permanent "den family" has been selected to oversee the facility. "Unity Hall's" programs will be operated by the church's Committee on Youth and community volunteers.
 "The structure of 'Unity Hall,'" says Murray, "will say love from the front porch to the backyard, from the basement to the roof and from heart to heart."
 Currently, there are 18 youth and adult programs offered at the First A.M.E. Church including tutoring assistance, counseling, computer and job training, which will all be relocated to "Unity Hall." As the center becomes established new programs will continue to be added to the roster.
