Hosted by the Friends Committee of the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History, this biennial event honors the legacy of Museum founder Dr. Charles H. Wright by recognizing excellence in the works of those in the local community. The 2012 theme, "The Dream, The Vision, The Legacy Continues" will carry the evening as awards are presented in the categories of Education, Fine Arts, Media/Communications, Community Activism, and Volunteerism.
