Hey Pips! I want to share a great event I went to this last Saturday. I had the pleasure of attending the Chicago Urban League’s Golden Fellowship Dinner, which provided an inspiring and uplifting event featuring amazing speakers and a performance by Gladys Knight that blew the room away. The Urban League promotes economic, educational and social progress for African-Americans and promotes strong, sustainable communities through advocacy, collaboration and innovation. This event reminded me on how far we have come as a nation to provide equality of opportunity and how important it is to continue empowering all of our communities.
During the gala, leaders shared their stories of struggle, success and how they were helped along the way. The Cosby Show’s Phylicia Rashad, and the Rev. Willie T. Barrow, one of the nation’s consummate community organizers and respected Civil Rights leaders, accepted the Edwin C. “Bill” Berry Civil Rights Award.
