Compton native ABC black-ish star and Emmy-nominated actor Anthony Anderson was named today as the 2017 Grand Marshal of the annual Compton Christmas Parade.  Presented and produced by the City of Compton, the parade, now in its 64th year, will take place on Saturday, December 9th in the heart of Compton and is themed, “Peace and Happiness for Every Child At Heart.”

“We are excited to have Anthony Anderson represent the city of Compton as our 2017 Grand Marshal,” said Mayor Aja Brown. “He has been committed to giving back to Compton and continues to be a significant supporter of the Compton community—especially our young people.  Christmas is a special time of year and that holds true for the families of Compton.  The holiday season is an important time for our community to come together and I am looking forward to this year’s Christmas parade.”
