Attorney General Eric Holder was born in Queens, but now lives in Washington as the nation's Chief Law Enforcement Officer, and Thursday night he was starring the Bronx.

Attorney General Eric Holder was the keynote speaker at an event celebrating Black History month in Co-op City.

During his speech the Attorney General spoke about growing up on the streets of East Elmhurst and Harlem and how it pushed him to become a lawyer.

Holder says he was inspired by the work of dedicated attorneys who helped restore hope, and rebuild dreams of so many people who faced terrible struggles.
