Every year since 1991, we have honored our brothers and sisters
who have worked to push the movement forward.
Their legacies have crossed color lines, cultural divisions and spanned across the globe.
The fight for civil rights continues to shift and change, from marches for desegregation to
policy change for economic equity, criminal justice reform, voting rights, and more.
The premise remains the same: Equality and fairness for all.
Our 2021 honorees are presented the award for their work, impact, and accomplishments in the name of freedom and civil rights. A Special Tribute is paid to DARNELLA FRAZIER whose eyewitness video of George Floyd launched global protests against injustice and brutality. LAMMAN RUCKER is the ceremony host.
We never miss an opportunity to educate our youth. This exciting event is designed to specifically address young people, inspire them to take action, and stand for something meaningful in their communities.
