Charles Hawkins

DAY 047 Charles Hawkins photographed exclusively for the 100 Men Hall People Project (100MHPP).

Years ago, I heard about the Hall when I was younger, but this is the first time I’ve actually stepped into the 100 Men Hall. I had very little information from my elders; it was almost in passing. My cousin Jason [McKay] introduced me to the history of the place and told me about it. Because of him, I came to see it. I did hear one thing from Crystal about the Martin Luther King banquet [January 2019]. She spoke positive things about the Hall.
