Walker Social Justice Leadership award at their annual MLK All People’s celebration. In notifying Samuel of this award, the Commission said it “is inspired by your work in the arts through theater, your plays that call us to address human rights and dignity concerns, your work in understanding human trafficking, and your lifetime of service through your professional positions and community involvement. We would like to honor you and your lifetime of work with this award.”

Congratulations Samuel! We are proud that the talents we have seen in you are being publicly recognized in your own community.
