This year’s theme for the gala is “Picking Up the Torch.” Scott Gray, president and CEO of the MUL, said he is proud to have Andrew Young speaking at its annual event.

“We are excited to welcome Andrew Young, the tireless torch-bearer, whose life illustrates our theme,” Gray said. “As a living legend of the Civil Rights Movement, Young has dedicated his life to ensuring the torch of economic and social justice remains ignited.”

WCCO-TV anchor, Angela Davis, will emcee the program. Additionally, selected area students representing the Minneapolis Public School District will be acknowledged and receive scholarship awards made possible by corporate contributions.
