The Volusia County-Daytona Beach NAACP 42nd Annual Freedom Fund and Awards Banquet is scheduled for Saturday, May 30, 2015 at The Hilton Daytona Beach Resort, 100 N. Atlantic Avenue, Daytona Beach.
This year’s speaker is Mr. Henry “Hank” Thomas, one of the original Freedom Riders of 1961. Along with Mr. Thomas will be our special guest, Mrs. Janie Forsyth-McKinney. Then 12 years old, Janie did not let the color of her skin stop her from helping the trapped freedom riders. Her single act of kindness changed history.
