MCJ Photographer Yvonne Kemp received a plaque from Milwaukee Brewer official Thand McGrew on behalf of her brother the late photographer Harry Kemp during the second annual Black History Month luncheon held recently in the Gehl Club at Miller Park.
A freelance photographer who took pictures of the games and the fans at Miller Park for several years, Kemp passed away last September.
During the luncheon there was a photo presentation that paid tribute to his work. There was also a drawing for the popular Brewers Family Reunion package for 25 people to the 2012 Negro Leagues Tribute game on Saturday, July 28 against the Washington Nationals.
An invitation only luncheon for selected key influencers in the African American community, the Black History luncheon is designed to continue fostering quality relationships with members of the Milwaukee community in a business-social networking environment.
Part of the event program will include a visual presentation that will draw parallels between the improvements of social relations and the success of African Americans in the sport of baseball.
The photo was taken by MCJ Associate Publisher Mikel Holt.
