I took several photos from the 31st Annual Black History Month Breakfast at the Columbus Trade & Convention Center, Monday February 15, 2015. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee of Texas was the guest speaker, and the event had luminaries from all over the city, representing different sectors of society from fraternities to AFLAC to politics to Columbus Regional Health.
Several individuals were given awards for their years of community involvement: City Manager Isaiah and State Rep. Carolyn Hugley were jointly offered the “Legacy of Leadership” Award, Muscogee County Democrats Chair Saundra Ellison was offered the “Unsung Hero” award, and both Brandon Hicks and Gwenetta Wright were both offered the “Emerging Leader” award.
DISCLOSURE: My thanks to Rep. Sanford Bishop of Georgia who offered up to 8 free seats at the breakfast to Muscogee County Young Democrats, of which I am a part. I am also paid by the Muscogee County Democrats to maintain their official website and social media.
