Last year’s Black Ball celebrated the ingenuity, creativity, and vibrancy of Africa’s people, and our goal to eliminate AIDS as a factor in their future.

The evening was hosted by Alicia Keys and emceed by Chris Rock. Patrice Motsepe and Dr. Precious Moloi-Motsepe were honored for their humanitarian efforts and their commitment to the sustainable development of African communities.
