Media pioneer Cathy Hughes, Founder and Chairperson of Urban One, Inc., will be the featured speaker at our 40th Annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Celebration. The event will be held virtually at noon. Registration is free and available online.
“We’re thrilled that Cathy Hughes accepted our invitation to be the keynote speaker, and we are honored to induct her into our Walk of Fame,” stated Kristian Little Stricklen, President of MWLC. “Ms. Hughes’ career success exemplifies everything that Madam CJ Walker stood for in business and in advocating for the Black community.”
Hughes will expound upon the importance of the Black community having a voice of their own and beyond as a people, especially amid a pandemic and social injustice. We invite you to join us virtually for a 30 minute, one-on-one conversation with Hughes and Stricklen. In addition, Hughes will be inducted into the MWLC Walk of Fame during the event.
