The New York Urban League Young Professionals (NYULYP) hosted their annual REBIRTH! fundraiser at Taj II last week. The event honors the contributions made by the Harlem Renaissance and brought out young professionals from media, politics, academics, business, entertainment and fashion.

The theme was “Harlem Renaissance Meets the Digital Renaissance”; the event honored Editor-in-Chief Kristal L. High. Musical performances were also featured.

Proceeds from REBIRTH! benefit NYULYP’s annual backpack drive for low-income families and the Whitney M. Young Scholarship for high school seniors who excel academically and demonstrate a commitment to community service.
