Event Details

Greater Baltimore Urban League's The 61st Annual Whitney M. Young Jr. Gala & Dinner.  It is celebrating a Legacy of Leadership of J. Howard Henderson.

J. Howard Henderson, President & CEO of the Greater Baltimore Urban League, has an impressive and successful history of dedicated service to his community and the nation. He has spent his adult life working to improve the living and working conditions of African Americans, other minorities, the underprivileged and the under served. Prior to his Urban League appointment, Mr. Henderson demonstrated his commitment to human rights and civil rights in other employment venues. 


From 1980 to 1993, he served the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP)as a principal adviser to Dr. Benjamin L. Hooks, Chief Executive Officer. Before joining the national executive leadership team of the NAACP, Mr. Henderson was appointed by Gov. John D. Rockefeller, IV to serve as Director of the West Virginia State Employment and Training Division, Governor’s Office of Economic and Community Development.  Mr. Henderson is recognized nationally for his expertise in the areas of human and civil rights.


During the past 40 years, he has been involved in many of the major civil rights issues, including affirmative action, economic parity, political empowerment, fair housing, and education.  He ends an illustrious legacy of leadership at the end of the year.  This Equal Opportunity Weekend events serves as a tribute to his leadership.

The Whitney M. Young Jr. Dinner and Gala is the League’s principal fundraising event. All proceeds benefit our Education & Youth, Workforce Development, Entrepreneurship and new initiatives. This year we will celebrate 94 years of service to the community. Every year since its inception the Gala has grown to attract more and more individuals and corporations who embrace the mission of the Urban League.

Invitations to sponsor the Gala are extended to corporate, small business, professional and individual partners who welcome the opportunity to enhance their outreach efforts to the communities we serve. We are hopeful that you will once again support the Gala as one of the lead sponsor’s at the Platinum level. Typically the event draws between 600-700 attendees from the public and private sectors, including elected officials, corporate leaders, community partners and private citizens.
