2020 Black Achievers

The Black Achievers Society of Greater Kansas City is a not-for-profit organization founded in 1974, by the former Kansas City, MO-Mayor Emanuel Cleaver to honor African Americans in business and industry. A dinner was held in their honor, usually in the spring. In 1989 the award dinner was incorporated into the Martin Luther King Celebration hosted by the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC). Later in 1993, the organization in addition to acknowledging African American Business professionals also began providing scholarships to area youth.

The SCLC Martin Luther King Day celebration includes the Black Achievers’ Reception and Award Dinner held at the Federal Reserve Bank, 1 Memorial Drive, KCMO, Thursday, January 23 at 6 PM.
