The Department of Black Studies at the University of Nebraska Omaha and the Malcolm X Memorial Foundation would be honored to have you present at an upcoming event to promote awareness regarding the Nebraska Historical Society and its consideration of Nebraska Native, Malcolm X in the State Hall of Fame.
It is incumbent upon us to do something on a large scale to bring attention to this issue. Therefore; a star-studded event will be held on Monday, April 13, 2009 at 6 p.m. at the UNO Thompson Alumni Center in conjunction with the UNO Malcolm X National Conference.
Our honored guests will be television and film actors Anna Maria Horsford and Meschach Taylor. Horsford is perhaps best known for her role as Thelma Frye alongside Emmy and Golden Globe nominee Sherman Hemsley on the sitcom Amen, her role as Craig Jones’ mother, Betty Jones, in the 1995 comedy, Friday and as loveable security guard Dee on The Wayans Bros. Taylor began his film career in movies such as Damien, Omen II, The howling, Mannequin and Mannequin II, but is best known for his Emmy-nominated role of Anthony Bouvier on the hit television series “Designing Women”.
This will be an extraordinary event and we strongly encourage you to purchase a table to help us bring attention to, awareness of and support of this issue. Tables are $300 each with setting for 8. Groups of less than eight can purchase tickets at $40 per person. The price includes ticket to this black tie (optional) affair, an entrée, our keynote presentation and participation in the autograph signing at the conclusion of the program.
