“It’s a group close to my heart,” Maroney said. “Since last year’s breakfast, I’ve worked with their executive director, James Johnson, to create a free guitar lesson program. The program includes many donated guitars.

Durham Police Capt. Walter Tate, who grew up in the club and now serves the area, spoke at the event. Also speaking was Tayla Mebane, this year’s winner of Durham’s human rights youth award.RELATED LINK
