On April 9th our organization honored legendary performer and humanitarian Harry Belafonte with our "Here I Stand" Award in honor of Paul Robeson. Actor and activist Danny Glover interviewed Mr. Belafonte for two hours on stage concerning his remarkable life. Presenting the award to Mr. Belafonte was Paul Robeson Jr. This was truly an informative and historical event. We are preparing for next year's event and would like to hear from as many progressive minded individuals and organizations as possible to ask for your support with letters offering your recollections of Paul Robeson and his courageous stance against facism, especially during the Sapnish Civil War and solidarity with the Abraham Lincoln Brigade. Our aim is to educate this new generation about Paul Robeson and to inspire them towards activism for progressive causes. Sincerely, Abdur-Rahim Muhammad President/Founder Hung Tao Choy Mei Leadership institute 1351 U Street, NW Washington, DC 20009 202-265-1670
