A sold-out success, nearly 250 supporters from across the Miami Valley attended the Coretta Scott King Center’s third annual Legacy Luncheon at the Dayton Club, commemorating the legacy of Coretta Scott King, an Antioch College alumna, and celebrating the achievements of individuals and organizations committed to advancing social justice.. The Luncheon began with a spoken-word performance by current student Truth Garrett ’21. Civil rights activist and organizer Dr. Bernard Lafayette and Black Lives Matter co-founder and human rights defender, strategist, and writer Opal Tometi both received Legacy Awards. Justice Awards for regional social justice leaders went to Bomani Moyenda, Attorney Michael Wright, Corine Fairbanks, and Neighborhoods Over Politics.
The Legacy Luncheon was made possible through generous sponsorships from Dave and Elaine Chappelle, The Andrew Goodman Foundation, The Dayton Foundation, The Yellow Springs Community Foundation, Cox Media Group, WYSO, KeyBank, and the Miami Valley Regional Planning Commission.
