The Life, The Work, The Fight. 2020 Freedom Fund Dinner posterCelebrate Duluth's NAACP chapter’s 100th anniversary by attending our Freedom Fund Dinner 5pm February 21st at Clyde Iron.

This year’s theme is, “The Life, The Work, the Fight: Black History in Duluth.” The evening will highlight the contributions of people- past and present -- who have helped to make our history and are shaping our future. We wish to acknowledge our roots, highlight our achievements and build energy to continue our efforts. Enjoy narrative from NAACP Branch President Stephan Witherspoon, film from curated generational conversations created with Daniel Oyinloye, music from the Bell Family, artwork created by UMD Graphic Design students under the direction of Terresa Moses and the photographs initiated by the board of CJMM documenting the history of some of Duluth’s African American leaders. 

Doors open at 5:00 for the art exhibition and the dinner and program begin at 6:00. The Freedom Fund Dinner is the primary annual fundraising and ceremonial event for NAACP branches across the country. There remains much work to be done and we’d like you to join us to ensure this energy will continue.
