Angenita Daniels is a Case Manager at the Akron Urban League. She is a current resident of Canton, Ohio in Stark County. She grew up in Akron where most of her family still resides.
She began working for the Akron Urban League in March of 2020, just days after the nation was ordered to shelter in place.
