In 2016, Gladys Knight graced the stage to tell her story at the Odyssey Network Business Retreat at The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island. Her candid conversation and one-on-one interview with then Senior-Vice President of Prudential, Sharon Taylor, was spellbinding. The interview ended with Gladys Knight tearfully thanking the audience for their overwhelming response in support of her dream to revamp a school down south.
Gladys Knight was saluted for her incredible business skills, perseverance and legacy as an entertainer. During her speech, Knight shared with the audience the hurdles and obstacles black female entertainers faced back in 1950 – issues she says are still prevalent.
On August 29, the Odyssey Circle will reconnect with Gladys during her performance in New Jersey. Circle Members from New York to Philadelphia will gather for dinner, attend the concert and celebrate her legacy.
This event is for Circle members-only. For more information, contact Andeidre Macklongs at [email protected]
