SAN BERNARDINO, CA-The San Bernardino NAACP will commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the 1964 Civil Rights Act with a keynote address by the Honorable Willie L. Brown, Jr. Brown is most noted for his tenure in the California State Assembly as the longest serving Speaker of the House, and most recently, as the first black Mayor of the city of San Francisco. Earlier this year, the San Francisco Bay Bridge was named the Willie L. Brown Jr. Bay Bridge, in his honor.
As an undergraduate student, Brown was very active in the San Francisco Branch of the NAACP. On February 4, 2014, he was inducted into the NAACP Legacy Hall of Fame. As a keynote speaker, Brown mixes passion and practicality to discuss his wins and losses in the world of politics. With a dynamic, no-nonsense style, his message will stimulate the audience to add value to their community by getting involved with the local branch of the NAACP.
The Annual Freedom Fund Dinner will take place Thursday, October 30 at 6 p.m. at the Hotel San Bernardino located at 285 East Hospitality Lane. Tickets can be purchased online at www.SanBernardinoNAACP.org/freedom-fund-dinner.
