Political, education and business leaders gathered at three events in the metropolitan area recently. Coppin State University's president, Dr. Stanley F. Battle, played host to several community leaders at one in a series of State of Black Baltimore Roundtable Summit discussions at the North Avenue campus. Martin's West in Woodlawn was the setting for two other popular affairs. The first was a banquet to honor the years of service of Morgan State University President Dr. Earl S. Richardson and to celebrate the School of Engineering's 20th anniversary. The second affair was the very festive 14th annual 100 Black Men of Maryland Spring Gala and Heritage Ball.
