Some 2,500 came together this July 4th weekend at Cobo Hall in Detroit, MI for The Links, Incorporated 37th national assembly. The Links, an organization of accomplished, successful African American women, has four service trends — arts, services to youth, national trends, and international trends.

The Links honored Radio One Founder & Chairperson Cathy Hughes and Susan Rice, the US ambassador to the UN. The organization also honored Dr. Dorothy Height, the civil rights icon who died April 20. Dr. Height, chair and president emerita of the National Council of Negro Women, was to have received the Lifetime Achievement Award.

This year, the organization is the founding sponsor for the Focus: Hope Family Learning Center, which will provide computer training, tutoring, assistance with homework, ongoing financial workshops, and a credit union.

In a press release, Focus: HOPE co-founder Eleanor Josaitis called the Family Learning Center a dream come true.

“Our community needs access to resources that many of us take for granted,” she said.
