2017 Annual Massachusetts Black Lawyers Association Gala – March 16, 2017

On March 16, 2017 the MBLA hosted our 2017 Annual Gala, at the Boston Marriott Copley Place. We would like to thank and recognize our award recipients, Ruth-Arlene W. Howe, Walter Prince, and Brent Henry, for their dedication and outstanding contributions to the legal community and for allowing us to honor them at our Annual Gala.

The 2017 Annual Gala was truly an inspirational evening. We are thrilled and humbled by the outpouring of support from so many law firms, government agencies, corporations, non-profit organizations, and individual supporters.

On behalf of the MBLA, we extend our deepest appreciation to everyone who attended and/or supported the Annual Gala. We look forward to seeing you again at our 2018 Annual Gala!
