Anika Noni Rose to Keynote Women of Color Gala

HARTFORD — Tony Awards winning actress Anika Noni Rose will keynote the third 100 Women of Color Gala in Hartford on March 16.

The event is hosted by Eleven28 Entertainment to recognize women of color from Springfield to Stamford who have achieved distinction in their profession or industry, and made a difference in the community, organizers said.

The event will be held at 7:00 p.m. on March 16, 2018 at The Bushnell, formerly The Bushnell Theater.

A portion of the proceeds from the event will support a number of nonprofit organizations to fund scholarships, community activities and other nonprofit organizations.

Rose  has graced the silver screen as the first African-American Disney Princess in “The Princess and The Frog”, “Dream Girls”, the Starz breakout show “Power” and BET’s “The Quad.”

Rose is a native of Bloomfield Connecticut. Hartford Mayor Luke Bronin and Governor Dannel Malloy will also be in attendance to address these women of distinction.
