Since 1984, the awards have been presented to people or groups who “exemplify service to the community, demonstrate the values modeled by Dr. King, and make significant contributions to the Hampton Roads community.”
Among those honored this year were former Virginia Governor Douglas Wilder, who received the E.L. Hamm Lifetime Achievement Award.
Clint Smith, #1 New York Times bestselling author and Atlantic staff writer, was the keynote speaker for the awards breakfast.
