Harlem Nights - A Knockout Affair

9.23.2017 • 7:00 PM • JW Marriott • Austin, TX

Directions to the JW Marriott Austin • 110 East 2nd St • Austin, TX • 78701
The Harlem Nights gala is the premier fundraiser of The Austin (TX) Chapter of The Links, Incorporated and celebrates the wealth of talent that was prevalent in the New York area during the Harlem Renaissance period. During this period, African Americans emerged in all areas of the arts, music, sports and particularly as champions in 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 participate in the sport. The five facets that comprise our programming focuses are: the Arts, Health and Human Services, International Trends, National Trends and Services to Youth. We place much emphasis on demonstrating and focusing on the charitable and educational needs of our community. We hope to educate others as to the significance and prominence of the Harlem Renaissance period in these areas and create our own “stars and legends” from the target audience that we seek to enrich and assist.
