NNPA NEWSWIRE — “He is an icon in his own right, from a child who was responsible for integrating the library in his home state, to being wrongfully convicted, to now being the selfless leader who continues to fight for this cause,” Charles Fanniel continued. “It’s in his DNA to help others, and we’re honored to be a part of this amazing ceremony.” George Dean, the President, and CEO of the Greater Phoenix Urban League, said the honor is well deserved and should have come long ago. “This is an award that is long overdue,” Dean insisted. “Dr. Chavis has been an icon in the civil rights and social justice space for decades, and today we honor that.”
