Grammy-winner Erykah Badu has put herself up on the auction block to help raise funds for the African American Museum in Dallas. The 23rd annual African American Museum Gala and Auction, taking place May 10th, is the museum’s top fundraiser, helping to provide a home for African-American art and a venue for historical exhibits pertaining to African-American culture.

Funk group Lakeside will be entertaining the guests at this year’s event, and a silent auction will be held alongside the live one. The winner of the Badu lot will dine with the R&B/soul singer at Al Biernat’s in Dallas.

Dr. Harry Robinson founded the African American Museum in 1974. The museum is home to decorative arts, Sepia magazine’s photo archive and the Freedman’s Cemetery exhibit, as well as the Texas Black Sports Hall of Fame, an 11-year-old foundation that annually recognizes athletes and coaches.
