Time for Transition

As we continue to slowly emerge from the pandemic, the Langston Bar is getting back to supporting our colleagues and community in ways that simply weren’t possible over the past year and a half.

We are excited to be able to safely have in-person events again, starting with our 29th Annual Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony and Luncheon on October 23, 2021. Please 

Past President's Messages

join us as we look forward to honoring Judge Patti J. Titus, Judge Erithe A. Smith, Attorney Winston Kevin McKesson, and Attorney Victor Anderson III. The event will be a gorgeous courtyard luncheon with a hosted cocktail reception and live music. We are following protocols to keep all of us safe including requiring all guests to provide proof of vaccination and/or negative Covid test result within 48 hours of event. We are also streaming the event live for those who cannot attend in person.

Tickets for the in person and virtual options are on sale NOW! In person tickets are $125 but the cost for Langston Lifetime Members is only $100. The deadline to purchase in-person tickets is October 12, 2021. Streaming tickets are $50 for everyone and can be purchased up to the day before the event.

To purchase tickets, become a sponsor of the event, and/or purchase a table or an ad, please go to 

We hope to see you there!
