2022 NAACP Freedom Fund Banquet

October 23, 2022 11:30 p.m.
The El Dorado Union County Branch 6034 of the NAACP held its annual Freedom Fund Banquet Saturday night at the St. Mary’s Episcopal Church Parish Hall. The banquet, which raises money for the organization’s scholarships, featured food, music, speakers and a performance by the Young Artist Studio (YAS). Jerome Robinson served as the master of ceremonies for the event, and the program began with an invocation by Angula Davis and a song by Carolyn Norman. The evening’s keynote speaker was the Rev. Dr. O’Dell Carr, pastor of New St. Mary Baptist Church in Camden and author of the book “Resurrecting the Black Mind.” Carr’s speech was both a call to action and a look at history, focused on the program’s theme of “Enough.”
