The recognition portion of the program was led by a prayer for "Cousin" Mary Alexander, then comments by Thelma Anderson of COJA Philadelphia, Valray Productions and Aqueelah representing WURD 900 AM. A plaque recognizing the Honoree as the "Queen Mother" of the Philly jazz community was presented by Philly Jazz Blog to Carla Washington, who accepted for Mary Alexander.
A videotape of personal messages to the Honoree was recorded by student interns Ashley and Nydrea Gause from the New Media Technology Charter School, to be presented, after editing, with the plaque to our "Queen Mother".
It was the right place and the right time!
