As we have recently honoured Sir Sidney Poitier, the first Honouree of the Ustinov Prejudice Awareness Forum Award, today we feature a photograph of him, with colleagues in the civil rights movement, including Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
We do so for the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Day. Yesterday’s heroes are today’s and tomorrow’s also. The purpose of our new Awareness Awards, as with the Martin Luther King Day, is to remember and inspire.
