Formerly known as the Mayor’s Unity Breakfast, The Unity Breakfast is held in October each year in conjunction with the annual Human Relations Week. The theme of this year’s breakfast is “Building Community – What Can You Do?”, with Raoul Cunningham as keynote speaker. Raoul Cunningham serves as the state President of the NAACP. 

Individual tickets for $15 may be purchased at the Municipal Center in the Human Rights Commission Office or the Mayor’s Office, or from any member of the Hopkinsville Human Rights Commission. Tickets purchased at the door are $20 each. 

Sponsorships are also available. Please contact the Human Rights Office for more information. 

Each year a Hal & Bettye Thurmond and Unity Award are awarded to someone who is making a difference to improve the community through his/her dedication to human relations, and community members who contribute to the spirit of unity. These awards will be presented by the Hopkinsville Human Rights Commission and the City of Hopkinsville. 

Mayor Carter M. Hendricks also presents an award in honor and recognition of a volunteer for their outstanding service to Hopkinsville. Hopkinsville residents are invited to nominate a volunteer they believe deserves this meritorious award. 

Hal & Bettye Thurmond and Volunteer Award Nomination forms are being accepted until October 4, 2019. Forms can be found on the Hopkinsville Human Rights Commission website at
