100 Years of Civil Rights Work celebrated on Saturday, June 13

Reno – The Reno-Sparks NAACP’s 64th Annual Freedom Fund Banquet will be held on Saturday, June 13, 2009, at the Atlantis Casino-Resort-Spa in Reno. Reception begins at 6:00 p.m., dinner at 7:00 p.m.

The event commemorates the 100th anniversary of the formation of the national organization, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), which was founded in 1909.

The NAACP has been a champion in the civil rights movement over the past 100 years. The Reno-Sparks Branch was chartered in 1945.

Branch President Lonnie Feemster asks community support for the event.

“One hundred years of struggle has been worth the effort. We need help to solve lingering problems of past and current racial discrimination. We have contributed a lot to our community and hope the community will show up to support us at our most important event,” he stated.

The Freedom Fund Banquet will honor Reverend Terry McCray-Hill, pastor of Bethel AME Church; Bob Fulkerson, Executive Director of the Progressive Leadership Alliance of Nevada (PLAN); Sherria Taylor, Executive Director of ACCEPT (Advancing Community Cultivation & Enhancing Progressive Transformations); and Bertha Mullins, Vice-President of Community Development for Wells Fargo Bank.

College scholarships will be awarded to Tatiana Anderson-Hall, Camille Betton and Priscilla A. Onosigho.
