On Tuesday, June 1, 2010, guests at Washington, DC’s Longview Gallery were treated to an evening showcasing love via the release of the landmark coffee-table photo book, “I Still Do - A Celebration of African American Weddings.” The coffee-table book is a colorful display of photographer Kea Taylor's most beloved images from ten years of photographing African-American weddings. Kea Taylor and her husband Robert were on hand in style, to celebrate the power, elegance and beauty of black love. Kea is pictured above (2nd from left) with New York guest Cindy Baah (2nd from right) of Determined to Educate, Inc., and guests.
Soulful performances from The Brandon Combs Band and music from Platinum Sounds DJ kept the atmosphere festive throughout the evening. Gina Paige, President of African-Ancestry.com, served as the event hostess while other Washington, DC notables including Dr. Elsie Scott, President of the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation; DC Council member Muriel Bowser; Quentin Lawson, Director of the National Alliance of Black School Educators; A. Scott Bolden, Partner at Holland & Knight; and Tracey Webb, Founder and Editor of BlackGivesBack.com were also in attendance to show their support.
