2023 Black Creativity Gala

Guests dancing at the 2022 Black Creativity Gala

Thank you.

Together, we raised over $600,000 for Black Creativity at MSI.

We toasted to future generations of Black leadership in STEAM fields. We explored the Black Creativity Juried Art Exhibition. We enjoyed unforgettable culinary delights. And we danced the night away.

Thank you to The Allstate Insurance Company, the presenting sponsor for the 2023 Black Creativity Gala, for making this amazing night possible. The evening was led by Senior Vice President of Sourcing and Procurement Solutions for The Allstate Insurance Company Cheryl Harris, NBC5 Chicago Meteorologist Iisha Scott, the Black Creativity Council and MSI President and CEO Chevy Humphrey.
