Join us in Sacramento, CA on Monday, June 10 from 6:30 pm to 9 pm for the 12th Annual NAACP California Hawaii State Conference Legacy Hall of Fame celebration as we honor our 2024 inductees, Rev. Dr. Amos C. Brown and Danny Glover

 

Rev. Amos C. Brown, Th.D., of San Francisco, is a distinguished civil rights leader who studied under Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. He bravely participated in the lunch counter sit-in alongside King in 1961 and later joined the Freedom Riders in protesting segregation in the South. Rev. Brown’s remarkable contributions have earned him recognition, including the Martin Luther King, Jr. Ministerial Award and induction into the International Hall of Fame at the King International Chapel at Morehouse College. Serving as Pastor at the Third Baptist Church of San Francisco since 1976, Rev. Brown’s dedication to his community is exemplary. He has also served as Pastor at Pilgrim Baptist Church and Saint Paul’s Baptist Church. Currently, Rev. Brown serves as President of the San Francisco Branch and sits on the Board of Directors of the NAACP. He holds a Doctor of Theology degree from United Theological Seminary and a Master of Theology degree from Crozer Theological Seminary. Notably, Rev. Brown was appointed to the Reparations Task Force by Governor Gavin Newsom.

 

Danny Glover is a renowned actor, producer, and activist known for his impactful performances in film and his commitment to civil rights and economic justice. Danny Glover was born on July 22, 1946, in San Francisco, California. Both of his parents, Carrie and James Glover, were postal workers and active members of the NAACP. At San Francisco State University, he played a crucial role in the 1968 student strike, leading to the establishment of the country’s first ethnic studies department. After university, Glover worked for the City of San Francisco in the Model Cities Program while training at the American Conservatory Theater and Shelton Actors Lab. His acting career began in college, with roles in productions like Escape from Alcatraz (1979), leading to acclaimed performances in The Color Purple and the Lethal Weapon series. Outside of acting, Glover co-founded the Robey Theatre Company in 1994 and established Louverture Films to produce socially-conscious cinema. Recognized for his humanitarian efforts, he received awards such as the BET Humanitarian Award and multiple NAACP Image Awards. Additionally, Glover served as a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations Development Program from 1998 to 2004, focusing on poverty alleviation and economic development in Africa, Latin America, and the Caribbean. Residing in San Francisco with his wife, Eliane Cavalleiro, Glover continues to inspire change through his artistry, activism, and dedication to social progress.

 

It is with great honor that the NAACP California Hawaii State Conference, alongside our branch leaders, corporate partners, and Youth & College Division, ensure that Rev. Brown’s civil rights activism and legacy are forever commemorated through his induction as the 2024 NAACP CA/HI State Conference Legacy Hall of Fame member.
