Beverly Hills, Calif. – Leaders from throughout southern California joined the Rev. Al Sharpton as the National Action Network (NAN) kicked off Black History Month with its annual awards luncheon at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills.

The sold-out event attracted luminaries from a wide cross section of industries and featured speeches from NAN’s local and national leadership that underscored the group’s modern civil rights agenda. A highlight of the luncheon came with the presentation of special honors to Warner/Chappell North American President, Jonathan Platt; Compton Mayor Aja Brown; LA Sentinel Publisher, Danny Bakewell and Reverend Xavier L. Thompson of the Southern Missionary Baptist Church, for their  work that exemplifies the core values of the organization. A key moment in program came from the event’s final honoree, Rudy Falco, president and CEO of Univision, the nation’s leading Spanish language TV network, who pledge his considerable influence in support of one of NAN’s’ key initiatives to foster great collaboration between Blacks and Latinos.

Another well-known face in the room was reality star Omarosa Manigault, who spoke exclusively to NewsOne about the importance of National Action Network.
