“THE 100” Honors the Legacy of the late Mr. Herbert Carrington, Sr., 107 yrs. old, as its Father of the Year at 2nd Annual Juneteenth Celebration

May 16, 2006-Tampa, FL- The 100 Black Men of Tampa Bay, Inc. host the 2nd Annual Juneteenth Celebration at the Westin Harbour Island Hotel (formerly the Wyndham) on Sunday, June 18th from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. This year the “The 100” honors local men by establishing the “Father of the Year” award, which will be awarded to the late Mr. Herbert Carrington, Sr., 1899-2006. Mr. Carrington, died in April; and left a legacy that deserves to be honored. Mr. Carrington endured the many struggles and impacted the progression of the Black communities and leaders in Tampa Bay. His family and close friends will be in attendance to receive the award.

Last year’s Juneteenth Celebration was outstanding and left our audience with much to dwell on. The well received performers will join us once more and deliver a great message through entertainment. We are looking to the local communities, once again, for support of this anticipated event. The occasion themed “Juneteenth: Leaving a Lasting Legacy” will educate and entertain attendees on the history of Juneteenth and the importance of leaving a lasting legacy. Tickets are available online at www.100bmtb.org or Books for Thought located at 10910 N. 56th St. in Temple Terrace. There are still sponsorship and table reservations available.

Juneteenth represents a very important milestone in American history, when our nation attempted to live up to the creed “the land of the free.” It was June 19, 1865, when General Gordon Grainger read his Third General Order in Galveston, Texas announcing freedom to the last of the enslaved Americans: approximately two and a half years after they had been officially freed by the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation (January 1, 1863). Juneteenth is not just an African American celebration, but a very significant event in our American history as well. That day in 1865 signaled the last day of American slavery and for that reason it is a part of American History for all freedom-loving people to celebrate and treasure.

The 100 Black Men of Tampa Bay, Inc. is a non-profit organization serving the Tampa Bay community by offering programs to guide our youth in life experiences. The vision of “The 100” is to serve as a beacon of leadership by utilizing our diverse talents to create an environment where our children are motivated to achieve and to empower our people to become self-sufficient shareholders in the economic and social fabric of the communities we serve.
