Harlem Commonwealth Council Foundation, Inc.

Seventh Annual Awards Banquet

"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, Inc.


The Board of Directors of the Harlem Commonwealth Council Foundation, Inc. is proud to announce that it is the sole host of this year's Seventh Annual Awards Dinner which in previous years has been the responsibility of the Harlem Commonwealth Council, Inc. The Foundation was established last year to provide a vehicle through which profits from HCC's subsidiary companies and donations from individuals and corporations could be utilized within the Harlem community. It is the mandate of the Foundation to use its resources to improve the economic and social conditions which continue to beset the community.

We also take this opportunity to give deserved recognition to those distinguished men and women who have worked so relentlessly to improve the quality of life in Harlem and the City of New York. Each honoree has made significant contributions
