Message from the President

A

t some level and in some context we all want to be first - first place in a competition; first member of the family to reach a coveted milestone; first person to apologize to a loved one; first person to give up a seat for someone whose ailments prevent them from standing for long periods of time.

O

ver the 45 years, the Brotherhood Crusade, whose own history is rich with firsts, has celebrated individuals whose contributions to society were not only significant but also firsts – Walter Bremond: created the first structured system for African-American charitable contributions at the workplace directed to African-American programs; Aretha Franklin: first woman inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame; Yvonne Braithwaite Burke: first African American congresswoman and assemblywoman elected from California; Tom Bradley: first African-American mayor of a major U.S. city; Paula Madison: first African-American woman to be named general manager at a network-owned station in a top five market; and the list goes on.

T

he contributions of these pioneers have directly improved our lives and are very much worthy of praise. However, I am taking this opportunity to recognize my greatest heroes and herons – you – the individuals and partners that have contributed to and otherwise supported the Brotherhood Crusade today, and, as a result, facilitated life-changing firsts beyond measure.

Thank you all for your generous support to the Brotherhood Crusade. 

Sincerely,
