The Destiny Award Luncheon is an annual luncheon benefiting St. Philip’s School and Community Center.  The Humanitarian Award is given to a leader(s) who has demonstrated exceptional work in bridging diverse communities. Their work exemplifies the importance of embracing the belief in the  oneness  of  human  kind  in  which  the destiny  of  the  world  is linked.

St. Philip’s School and Community Center is a beacon of light, hope, and transformation in South Dallas. St. Philip’s provides an exceptional education to children from PreK2 to 6th Grade [ages 2 to 12].  St. Philip’s success is evident: 100% of St. Philips alumni graduate from high school and 95% attend college, while the graduation rate for the neighborhood high school is only 48%, with 4% going on to college.

Each year, the Community Center serves more than 3000 of our neighbors - including children, youth, entire families and seniors. Through the Community Center, St. Philip’s provides SENIOR SERVICES including transportation to local pharmacies; addresses HUNGER through partnerships with Meals on Wheels and the North Texas Food Bank; deepens STUDENT ENGAGEMENT through key enrichment programs such as mentoring and summer learning programs; and continues with its founding ATHLETIC programs serving over 700 children!

WHY TARAJI P. HENSON IS CAPTIVATING AUDIENCES

Academy Award nominee, Golden Globe winner, and star of the award-winning film “Hidden Figures,” Taraji P. Henson delights audiences with her tales about  family, friends, the hustle required to make it in Hollywood, and the joy of living your own truth.

With a sensibility that recalls her beloved screen characters, including Katherine, the NASA mathematician, Yvette, Queenie, Shug, and the iconic Cookie from “Empire,” Henson discusses her family—the one she was born into and the one she created. She shares stories of her father, a Vietnam vet who was bowed but never broken by life’s challenges, and of her mother, who survived violence both at home and on DC’s volatile streets. Here, too, she opens up about her experiences as a single mother, a journey some saw as a burden, but which she saw as a gift.

Henson also reflects on the world-class instruction she received at Howard University and how she chipped away, with one small role after another, at Hollywood's resistance to give women, particularly women of color, meaty significant roles. With laugh-out-loud humor and candor, she shares the challenges and disappointments of the actor’s journey and shows us that behind the red carpet moments, she is ever authentic. With lessons learned from throughout her career, Henson offers valuable insight into what it means to work hard to define and achieve success. Engaging and passionate, she inspires audiences with personal stories and firsthand insight into leveraging individual strengths to pursue one's dreams.
