Maggie Anderson (second from left), the founder of “The Empowerment Experiment” and the author of “Our Black Year,” which chronicles the year she and her family purchased exclusively from Black businesses, was the keynote speaker of the Milwaukee Urban League’s 53rd Equal Opportunity Day Luncheon held recently at the Pfister Hotel, 424 E. Wisconsin Ave. Anderson is pictured above with (left to right) MUL Board Chairman Jerry Fulmer, Dr. Eve Hall, president and CEO of the African American Chamber of Commerce and MUL President/CEO Ralph Hollman. The luncheon is an event that helps reinforce the importance of diversity and equal opportunity. It also generates funds which help support all the organization’s programs.
