Evening In Harlem
Evening in Harlem celebrates Black History Month by recognizing the Harlem Renaissance. The Harlem Renaissance was an intellectual, social, and artistic explosion for African-Americans centered in Harlem, New York, spanning the 1920s. Wallace Henry Thurman was an American novelist active during the Harlem Renaissance, and was born in Salt Lake City, Utah in 1902 and moved to Harlem in 1925.
This year’s Evening in Harlem is the first fundraising event for the UAACC Charitable Foundation, and will introduce the Utah Black Success Center. A platform to develop more Black community, business, corporate and government leaders to further elevate Utah's growing diversity. The Black Success Center will consist of an online training and resource tool and will be a physical center by 2025.
Come dressed in your best Harlem Renaissance attire, the styles of the late 20s and 30s, and come party with us!
We will have live music and a DJ provided by Changing Lanes Entertainment, a casino, silent auction, wine pull, and more!
We look forward to seeing you all there!
