We invite you to join us at the 41st Annual Dr. George D. Flemmings Memorial Freedom Fund Banquet on Friday, November 9, 2018 at 6:45pm at the Hilton Downtown Fort Worth Hotel. This is the annual fundraiser for the NAACP Fort Worth Tarrant County Branch. TICKETS WILL GO ON SALE WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 15TH.

This year's keynote speaker will be Ambassador Ron Kirk, Former U.S. Trade Representative. Ambassador Kirk was nominated to be United States Trade Representative by President Barack Obama and was confirmed by the United States Senate in 2009. He draws upon more than 25 years of diverse legislative and economic experience on local, state and federal levels. As the first African American mayor of Dallas from 1995 - 2001, Ambassador Kirk earned a reputation for bringing together diverse coalitions to get things done. He will bring home the Branch's theme this year: Embrace & Empower Our NEXT GENERATION!

The evening will include dinner, entertainment and a special tribute to the 50th Anniversary of the assassination of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The tribute will consist of a special message from someone that marched beside him during the Civil Rights Movement - Congressman John Lewis.
