Julian Roberts
The Coretta Scott King Trailblazer Award 2022

Julian Roberts is a Yellow Springs native who graduated from Yellow Springs High School in 2017. In the summer of 2020, following the death of George Floyd, issues of racism and police brutality were once again staring the country in the face. Julian, like many other members of the community, felt the urge to do something. For over 20 weeks, YS Black Lives Matter led by Julian and many others, met every week, organized marches, civil disobedience and gained momentum that in turn uplifted black artists, speakers, and activists in the Village of Yellow Springs and the broader Dayton and regional area.

Julie, is an example of the power of collective action, and multigenerational community organizing.
