No whinin’ or complainin.’ The CBC Gala that took place on the night of September 23rd was the first in years not featuring President Barack Obama or first lady Michelle Obama. The lines for metal detectors were short and there was no mass exodus after the President. The dinner ended at a convenient after-party-friendly 9:30 p.m. Rare.
With David Chappelle, Ruby Bridges, Victoria Rowell, and Common and Michael Eric Dyson delivering the keynote, the CBC Gala was one of the most at ease in years. A video of the evening is seen below:
