Ava DuVernay to Receive Freedom Award

Selma director Ava DuVernay has been a long standing supporter of civil rights in America and her efforts to uplift and inform the community are not going unnoticed. The National Civil Rights Museum in Memphis has decided to honor DuVernay with the Freedom Award.

 

The National Civil Rights Museum has direct ties to the movement as it is built at the site of the old Lorraine Motel, where civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated in April 1968.
