Thousands packed Cobo Hall for the 63rd annual NAACP 'fight for freedom fund' dinner.

It always brings out an impressive list of speakers and this year is no different.

However, It is not just a dinner, it is an iconic assembly of people who believe in civil and human rights, dignity and respect, and upward mobility for those often overlooked.

This year’s event featured special awards for Freedom and Justice, great expectations for the youth, the James Weldon Johnson Lifetime Achievement Award for one whose life exemplifies progress and development for all people.
