Recently, a virtual service was held for Calvin Coolidge Goode, who was the second Black councilmember in Phoenix, former vice mayor and the longest-tenured elected official in history of the city. The event took place on January 11th virtually, as people celebrated his work toward racial equity. When Mayor Kate Gallego spoke about his legacy, people could hear a man yelling racial slurs.
