ST. LOUIS (KSDK) - He jokingly referred to it as the "last supper." Retiring St. Louis Urban League President James Buford was honored for his 28 years of service at the annual Urban League dinner Monday night.
Marc Morial, the national president of the Urban League, is among those who attended the dinner.
"Marc has asked me if I will do a few non-job type consulting things for which I will be happy to do, without pay for that matter. I'm not going away I am going to stay involved in the community and do certain things," said Buford.
Monday was Buford's last day on the job.
There is a nationwide search for his replacement.
