Jazzy Holiday Gala 2015

The Jazzy Holiday Gala took place on Saturday, December 5,  2015 at the Charlotte Convention Center. This is an annual event by the Harvey Gantt Center for African and American Arts and Culture. ANPA Carolinas has always strived to support and give back to the community that we live and practice. Members came out in large numbers for the event which is also a big fundraiser for the Center.

We are proud to announce that Dr Yele Aluko and Shirley Houston-Aluko received the spirit of the center Philanthropy and Arts Advocacy Award during the event.
