NAACP FREEDOM FUND BANQUET IN HOUSTON!

HONORING THOSE WHO ARE ON THE FRONT LINES!














The Insite made a stop by the NAACP Freedom Fund Banquet Friday night at the Hilton of Americas. I also served as emcee with one of my favorite anchors Melanie Lawson from KTRK. The event was held to recognize those in the community who have been at the forefront to battle discrimination in schools to the work place. Some of the people honored by NAACP President Carol Mims Galloway were Mable Caleb, Richard Shaw and Dr. Benjamin Hall. Serving as honorary chairs for the event were former Houston Mayor Lee P. Brown and his wife Francis Brown. NAACP Executive Director Yolanda Smith worked tirelessly to put an event together everyone I ran into described as the best yet. Also attending the event were Rev. Bishop Dixon, Judge Levi Benton and legendary NAACP past President-Houston Branch Howard Jefferson. Congressional members Sheila Jackson Lee and Al Green were also present and participants in the program!
