38th Annual Rev. Dr Martin Luther King, Jr. Luncheon

We Cant Breathe Shifting the Paradigm on Inequality

The Honorable David N. Dinkins, Melissa Mark-Viverito, Pat Battle, Michael Jack and many more notable New Yorkers in attendance

January 16th, 2015New York, NY; On Wednesday January 14th, 2015 African-American leaders in the human services community and their colleagues attended the 38th Annual Rev. Dr Martin Luther King, Jr. Luncheon at the Hilton Hotel
 New York. 

The timely theme for this year was: “We Cant Breathe Shifting the Paradigm on Inequality” and Pat Battle of NBC 4 New York served as mistress of ceremonies for the event. And the event featured a thought provoking keynote speech by The Honorable David N. Dinkins, Former Mayor City of New York.

An annual event hosted by Black Agency Executives (BAE), this membership organization comprised of executives of major human service agencies in New York City. “Black Agency Executives members are standing in the gap on every socioeconomic and political issue facing people who look like us – even when the cameras aren’t rolling, even when nobody is watching, even when the credit for our contributions is hard to come by..”, said Danielle Moss Lee, President of BAE.

Each year, the BAE recognizes individuals and organizations with an outstanding track record for serving the community.. This years honorees included:

   Jennifer Jones Austin, CEO/Executive Director - Federation of Protestant Welfare Agencies received the Member Agency Award.

   Vivian Manning Fox, Executive Director - 1199 Childcare Funds

   Lowell Hawthorne, Co-Founder, President & CEO - Golden Crust Bakery & Grill

Since it’s first event in 1977, the organization has continued to grown steadily and continues to honor the life and achievements of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Bringing together thought-leaders for an afternoon of thought provoking discussion, the event is designed to inspire social change and make a difference within the black community.

On why it is important to honor the legacy of Rev. Dr Martin Luther King, Jr, Carla D. Brown, BAE Luncheon Chairperson said: “Continuing to honor Dr. King's legacy is extremely apropos at this time in our history. Fifty years after Selma, we are still struggling with racial, economic and educational injustice. This luncheon is an opportunity to encourage people to mobilize and do something to create
 positive change.”

The 38th Annual Rev. Dr Martin Luther King, Jr. Luncheon is supported by a number of partners and sponsors including Harlem Children’s Zone, American Express, Colgate Bright Smiles, Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of New York and Bright Futures IBM. The event was produced by Bee Season Consulting.
