Actor and activist Louis Gossett is scheduled to deliver the keynote address at the Detroit Association of Black Organizations' 34th annual "State of the Race" fundraiser.

The dinner will be held Sunday afternoon and evening at the Northwest Activities Center in Detroit. Donations will benefit DABO's college scholarship fund.

Children in poverty and the help they need is the theme of this year's program. DABO is a federation of more than 130 organizations promoting cultural, economic, political, and social interests in the black community.

Gossett has appeared in dozens of films. He won an Oscar for best supporting actor in 1983 for his portrayal of the no-nonsense Navy flight school sergeant who whips Richard Gere into shape in "An Officer and a Gentleman."
