Sharon Lettman-Hicks, executive director of the National Black Justice Associations said at the event, "We must be proud enough to claim that we are a part of the civil rights movement. And dare anyone to challenge us on that."

Earl Fowlkes with International Federation of Black Prides and Pastor Darren Phelps of Pride at Work AFL-CIO discussed other challenges facing LGBT people of color.

Gay activists who participated on the historic March on Washington were also recognized at the event.

The evening concluded with a push to honor Dr. King's trusted openly gay advisor Bayard Rustin with a postage stamp.
