Event description
Black Women for Positive Change presents "The Elizabeth Keckley Awards". and Fundraiser Concert

About this event

The October 2021 Tenth Annual Month of Families, Non VIolence and Opportunities, will feature the Elizabeth Keckley Awards and Concert, October 16th, 7-9 pm. This event will honor heroes in American society who have contributed to the quality of life in our nation by presenting them with an Elizabeth Keckley Award, to symbolize their dedication, strength and commitment. A musical concert will be provided by Dietrick Haddon, composer of "I Can't Breathe."

Our honorees are saluted in the name of the historic figure Elizabeth Keckley, a woman born into slavery, who bought her own freedom, and was a bold and avid Abolitionist against slavery. Mrs. Keckley started her own seamstress business in Washington, D.C. and became one of America's first fashion designers, with clients like Mrs. Abraham Lincoln, and wives of U.S. Senators.
