About the event

The Inaugural Layers of Black History Gala took place in 2022 with the intention to donate 75 books written by Black or Brown authors to the local community in Palmyra, Pennsylvania. This stemmed from Corey Dupree, a co-founder of the Layers of Black History Gala, desire for literary representation to be prevalent in his children's school district. In less than 45 days, we were able to surpass that number and gather over 500 books for local youth — all of which were donated and purchased by sponsors, supporters, and attendees of the event.

In 2024, the Layers of Black History Gala team is looking to further support the mission of developing and implementing initiatives that serve the community, promote representation, and deliver educational resources to underserved populations. 

Our objective for the 3rd Annual Layers of Black History Gala is to raise funds to provide another 1,000 books to communities and organizations, and to fund 4 more scholarships that will provide educational support for social and recreational activities for individuals.

Join us for an unforgettable night of networking, music, amazing food, edu-tainment experiences, and so much more. You do not want to miss out as we sell out every time!
