- CBS 4 is celebrating Women's History Month throughout March by shining a spotlight on women shattering the glass ceiling in our community. Thanks to Tina Brown, the Overtown Youth Center has been an integral part of the community by providing different programs to inner-city youth. She's the center's executive director. And one of her responsibilities is to make sure it succeeds in keeping kids off the streets and out of trouble. Brown grew up in Overtown and accepted the job in 2005.

TINA BROWN: 16 years later, I'm still working with the Overtown youth center. And truly, it is a labor of love. But more importantly, it is, you know, my life's passion to want to help individuals in the community that I grew up in or similar communities. And I always say to people, if I could do it, anybody can do it.

- Brown says Women's History Month should be all year long, as it's important for women to empower, inspire, and lift each other up.
