In celebration of the New Tri-State Defender’s 65th year of publication, we paused on March 25 to recognize the LEGENDS who have blazed trails in Memphis and the LEADERS who carry the torch now.

We’d like to thank our partners: McDonald’s; Bean & Prince Contractors Inc.; and of course, St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital, who opened their amazing Domino’s Event Center for our evening of achievement.

Take a peek at some of the scenes from the Legends & Leaders Gala 2017!
