Racine NAACP celebrating its
60th annual Freedom Fund Dinner

The Racine Branch of the NAACP will celebrate the organization’s 60th Annual Freedom Fund Dinner on Friday, October 29 at the Racine Marriott Hotel, 7111 Washington Avenue. Social hour is from 5-6 p.m. and the program begins at 6:30 p.m. The theme is “One Nation, One Dream.”

Featured keynote speaker is the sensational Dr. Samuel Betances. Dr. Betances is a biracial, bicultural, and bilingual citizen of the world. He has worked in all fifty states, all six U.S. territories and in various countries including Japan, Korea, Germany and Mexico. This great motivator was not supposed to make it. Out of the bowels of inner city poverty, stigma of minority group status, violence, welfare and illiteracy in two languages, he arose. With strong spiritual convictions and a passion for reading, Samuel Betances has taken the hard lessons from the mean streets of life and reshaped them into his personal vision. Dr. Betances embarked on a journey from dropping out of school to a Doctorate from Harvard University.

Tickets are on sale at the cost of $50 per person. For ticket information, please call (262) 672-9929.
