A national black gay civil rights organization is set to hold its first major event in metro Atlanta on Thursday, an evening designed to raise funds and honor several groups and people.
The National Black Justice Coalition, a Washington, D.C.-based nationwide black LGBT civil rights organization, will settle into the upscale confines of the Mitchell Gold & Bob Williams retail space in Buckhead for an evening of presentations, music, conversation, food and drinks. The group plans to honor gay groups from Morehouse and Spelman colleges, along with Dani Lee Harris, the Atlanta Police Department’s GLBT Liaison officer.
The night also promises to include a long list of boldface names, including City Council President Lisa Borders, members of the Georgia Black Caucus, R&B singer Kia Hamm, veteran LGBT activist Duncan Teague, HRC Dinner Co-Chair Ebonee Bradford and DJ Fire.
Tickets to the event, which begins at 7 p.m., are $50.
