A night of shining stars

This weekend the 100 Black Men of America hosted its annual conference in Hollywood, Florida. The conference culminates with a black-tie gala and awards ceremony that recognizes business, community and civic trail blazers. I was lucky enough to be one of this year’s attendees which is always a star-studded evening.

This year’s award winners included the legendary, Cicely Tyson and entertainer, philanthropist and fly jock, Tom Joyner, who both received a lifetime achievement award; Alonzo and Tracy Wilson Mourning received the 100’s Trailblazer Award for their work in the South Florida community through Alonzo Mourning Charities and the Honey Shine Mentoring Program for girls along with Dr. Matthew Plummer for his community activism and service in the Houston area; and the Honorable James Clyburn (D-SC) received the 100’s Lifetime Achievement Award in Government.

Following the awards ceremony the guests were serenaded by the beautiful voice of Vivian Green.
We salute all of this year’s award recipients for their efforts to impact the lives of others and encourage each of you to get involved in the efforts of the 100. To learn more go to
