"Living and Learning our Legacy" Wichita Branch NAACP Freedom Fund Tickets Now on Sale!

One of the key components of our mission is to ensure that all children stand on the solid foundation of a quality education; one that prepares them for the road ahead, and one that includes and informs them of the power and the legacy of the African-American story. In that light, we would like to ask you to join with us on October 20th 2007, as we celebrate and educate this year at our annual Freedom Fund Award Banquet. Our theme this year is: Reaching Back… Looking Forward… Learning & Living our Legacy.

Our guest speaker will be Leonce Hampton; the Executive Director of the nationally renowned Amistad Research Center of New Orleans, Louisiana. And through an exciting partnership between the Wichita Branch NAACP, the Kansas African American Museum , and the Amistad Research Center, the event will also feature a first run exhibition of historical Art and Manuscript exhibits detailing the richness of African American history. These works will be prominently displayed and discussed during the Awards Banquet, and afterwards they will be moved to the Kansas African American Museum where they will be featured as a two-week traveling exhibit. The event will also provide us with an opportunity to give honor and tribute to some very deserving local pioneers and trailblazers of the Civil Rights movement.

Through this event, we want to inspire and encourage the Youth of the community to a greater appreciation of history and its many lessons and legacies and to raise their expectation levels for personal achievement and success. Our goal is to host 150 Youth at the banquet this year . Included in their price of attendance, each youth will also receive a one-year membership into the Wichita NAACP Youth Council and the newly formed Ronald A. Walters Leadership Academy, along with a one-year membership in the Kansas African American Museum.

Tickets are on sale now! To purchase tickets or for more information,please contact Elaine Guillory at 316.262.7651
