On September 23rd, 2006, I had the pleasure of giving the keynote address for the Colorado Black Chamber of Commerce Annual Gala in Denver, Colorado. Here I stand with (left to right) Mrs. Glynis Albright, Mr. and Mrs. Wellington Webb, former mayor of Denver, Colorado and the reason I traveled to give this speech, Brandon Albright and his father, the legendary jazz saxophone artist Gerald Albright. The Albright's are family friends and attended as my guest.

Operation HOPE is going into Denver this year, as we launch a Banking on Our Future, Denver Program Office, teaching financial literacy and "silver rights" to our children there, thanks to our lead signature sponsor there Bank of the West. Mayor Webb has agreed to serve as the co-chair of our newly created Banking on Our Future, Denver advisory board.
Onward, with HOPE
John Hope Bryant
