Hello Beautiful People!
The Black Business and Professional Association (BBPA), held the 36th Annual Harry Jerome Awards on Saturday, April 28th, 2018. It was an evening of black excellence and a celebration of our rich legacy. I am always pleased to support this important gala, it makes a positive impact in the black community.
I was thrilled for the 12 recipients who received The Harry Jerome Awards in the respective areas: Academic, Arts, Athletics, Business, Community Service, Diversity, Entertainment, Health Service, Leadership, Lifetime Achievement, Media and the President’s Award.
Kelvin and I supported, saluted and celebrated our friend, Immediate Past President of the BBPA, Pauline Christian, the recipient of the 2018 President’s Award.
It was a pleasure having an important and relevant exchange with the Member of Parliament for Whitby, ON, Celina Caesar-Chavannes, regarding the balance of success, and at times “It’s ok to not be ok!” (#itsoktonotbeok), We all need a quick minute to recalibrate – I know you will agree.
There you have it Beautiful People! The scoop on the coming together of a resilient, courageous, intelligent and talented group of people, who have served their communities. I am reminded “Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth.” ~Mohammed Ali~
As always, thank you ever so much for stopping by the blog! Your love and support is appreciated. xox
