Afro-American Sports Hall of Fame Event
In 2016, the Wayne County Council for the Arts, History and Humanities located the Afro-American Sports Hall of Fame & Gallery collection formerly displayed in the old Wayne County Building.
The County Executive facilitated the donation of the collection to the Charles H. Wright Museum of African-American History. On April 20th, we hosted an event celebrating the donation and the Hall of Fame's history.
As part of the event preparation, I was tasked with assembling the pre-show onscreen presenation and assisting Rebuild Group with the design of the event program, for which I contributed the copy deck. I also assembled the panel that headlined the evening's presentation.
After the event I edited video of the event (provided by the museum) and posted to YouTube and Wayne County social channels.
Panel discussion featuring former Negro Leagues player Ron Teasley, Joyce Stearnes Thompson (daughter of Turkey Stearnes) and Kevin Lloyd (son of NBA pioneer Earl Lloyd).
