Eunice W. Johnson Tribute Luncheon

The Metropolitan Museum of Art hosted a tribute luncheon for Eunice W. Johnson, philanthropist, fashion icon, and a founder of the magazine Ebony. Planned months in advance, the event took place just after Mrs. Johnson's death at age 93 on January 3, 2010. More than 175 guests assembled in The Museum's Temple of Dendur in The Sackler Wing to honor Mrs. Johnson for employing fashion to empower African Americans through the Ebony Fashion Fair.

President Bill Clinton; Desirée Rogers, White House Social Secretary; Thomas P. Campbell, Director of The Metropolitan Museum of Art; Emily K. Rafferty, Met President; Linda Johnson Rice, Ebony Chairman and CEO; Harold Koda, Curator in Charge of The Costume Institute; Donna Williams, Met Chief Audience Development Officer

The Eunice W. Johnson Tribute Luncheon took place on Monday, January 11, 2010, made possible in part by Macy's
