14th Annual From Slavery to Freedom Gala


Please join us for the 14th Annual From Slavery to Freedom Gala to be held May 17, 2012 at the Skirball Cultural Center. This year's event will feature a special VIP Tour of the Women Hold Up Half the Sky exhibit. Inspired by the best-selling book Half the Sky by Nicholas D.
