Harlem Commonwealth Council Inc. 
and The Harlem Commonwealth Foundation 
present the

Sixth Annual

"People who have no effective voice in the community they inhabit nor control over its economic resources are only tenants on someone else's land" 

Credo: Harlem Commonwealth Council

The Harlem Commonwealth Council, Inc. and the Board of Directors of the Harlem Commonwealth Foundation Inc., have selected this special occasion, our 6th Annual Awards Dinner, to proudly present the Harlem Commonwealth Foundation, Inc. The Foundation was established to provide a source through which profits from HCC's 14 subsidiaries and donations from various corporations could be utilized within the Harlem Community. It is our intention, as one of the leading community development corporations in he country, with assets of more than 28 million, to improve the desolate social conditions of our community by diligently serving the interests of Harlem through the Foundation.

We are also taking this opportunity to give deserved recognition to those distinguished men and women who have worked relentlessly to improve the conditions of the needy. Each honoree has made significant contributions to help remedy the degradation of those who are powerless to help themselves. Each honoree also is committed to providing guidance for our youth, assistance for our elderly and unyeilding [unyielding] support for others who strive to make our lives more rewarding.

We thank you for joining us on this very special occasion
