Project 21 participants live all over the U. What they have in common is a desire to make America a better place for African-Americans, and all Americans, to live and work. Project 21 members do this in a variety of ways in their own communities, and, through Project 21, by writing opinion editorials for newspapers, participating in public policy discussions on radio and television, by participating in policy panels, by giving speeches before student, business and community groups, and by advising policymakers at the national, state and local levels. This became most obvious during the April riots in Los Angeles, when the media provided extended coverage of the reaction of liberal civil rights leaders to the events surrounding the Rodney King controversy. Curiously, the media made little mention of those in the African-American community who spoke out in favor of law and order and individual responsibility — and against the rioting.

Black tie is a semi-formal Western dress code for evening events, originating in British and American conventions for attire in the 19th century. In British English , the dress code is often referred to synecdochically by its principal element for men, the dinner suit or dinner jacket sometime abbreviated to just a DJ. In American English , the equivalent term, tuxedo, is common. The dinner suit is a black, midnight blue or white two- or three-piece suit , distinguished by satin or grosgrain jacket lapels and similar stripes along the outseam of the trousers. It is worn with a white dress shirt with standing or turndown collar and link cuffs , a black bow tie , typically an evening waist coat or a cummerbund , and black patent leather dress shoes or court pumps.
