(FOX 2) - The tables set, dressed to impress in the packed ballroom at Cobo Center for the 64th Annual Fight for Freedom Fund Dinner.
The focus was on policy and politics with the 2020 Presidential Race as the backdrop.
Head of the NAACP Detroit Branch, Reverend Doctor Wendell Anthony led the more than four hour program.
Governor Gretchen Whitmer at Sunday's event is promising a strong partnership with the NAACP now and during her time in office.
Of course all eyes were on keynote speaker U-S Senator Kamala Harris who’s gunning for the white house race in a crowded democratic field of candidates.
Touting her platform no question this was a campaign stop Harris.
Over the years the Fight for Freedom Fund Dinner showcased African American politicians but they don't endorse candidates because they are a nonpartisan organization.
But there were many mentions of how important this next election is for the African American community.
