Harlem Nights - A Knockout Affair

Sunday, September 24, 2017, 2:00 AM

The Harlem Nights gala, the premier fundraiser of The Austin (TX) Chapter, celebrates the wealth of talent that permeated New York during the Harlem Renaissance period.  With this period came the emergence of African Americans into the sport of boxing.  Jack Johnson was the first African American to win a world heavyweight championship in 1908 by defeating Tommy Burns. He held on to his title until 1915 and inspired more African Americans to go into boxing. As we focus on programming that addresses charitable and educational needs, we hope to capitalize on the prominence of the Harlem Renaissance to create our own “stars and legends” in the young people we seek to reach.
