FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) - The Women in NAACP celebrated Black History Month with their annual brunch on Saturday at Link's Wonderland. This year's theme was "Educate, Empower, & Inspire for Change."
Barbara Holder, the Women of NAACP chair for the state of Indiana, said the brunch is held each year for people to get together and celebrate the Civil Rights Movement.
"The battle is not over. There are still issues surrounding minorities and women," Holder said.
Phebe Poydras, Associate Dean for Library Affairs and Assistant Professor of Law at Indiana Tech Law School, was the keynote speaker at the event and NewsChannel 15's Eryn Rogers was the mistress of ceremonies.
Holder said she is very impressed with the Fort Wayne NAACP chapter and the brunch they put on.
"The city of Fort Wayne has shown a commitment and passion towards the civil rights movement and equality," Holder said.
