SOLD OUT – 92nd Annual Black History Luncheon – February 24, 2018, Washington, DC

It’s the premier event and hottest ticket in the Nation’s Capital in the month of February.

And, YOU don’t want to miss it.

Compelling and comprehensive, this year’s theme warrants special treatment. The luncheon will feature distinguished representatives of the United States Armed Forces who will discuss a range of topics, illuminating the extraordinary impact of African American military personnel in fighting racism and inequality at home and abroad while ensuring civil rights for all over the past 100 years.

Let’s celebrate and recognize Black History — together!
