Slated to open in May 2014, in Atlanta, Georgia, The National Center for Civil and Human Rights will be the first institution to present the legacy of the Civil Rights Movement in the context of today’s human rights issues.
The National Black McDonald’s Operators Association will be recognized as the presenting sponsor of the National Center for Civil Rights’ Shared Gallery Interactive Café.
The Gallery space will recognize NBMOA’s commitment to preserve and share the stories of the courageous individuals that fought vehemently for the rights of all people in the American Civil Rights Movement.
This Leadership Award recognizes McDonald’s Franchise Owners who distinguishes themselves as leaders through their enhancement of McDonald’s image in the community, demonstrating strong personal involvement and commitment to building relationships.
The NBMOA presented $10,000 each to Bethune-Cookman University and Florida A&M University.
The funds are earmarked for special scholarships honoring Trayvon Martin and will be for African-American males.
