The National Civil Rights Museum is honoring Black Enterprise’s 2015 Women of Power Summit Legacy Award recipient Charlayne Hunter-Gault with the International Honoree award.

Taking place on December 2, 2014, Hunter-Gault will be honored along with educator and civil rights activist Dr. Robert P. Moses, Major League Baseball Hall of Famer Frank E. Robinson, and journalist Tim Brokaw.

Known as one of the first students to integrate the University of Georgia, Hunter-Gault is an award-winning journalist with over 40 years of experience in the industry. Her global career has led her to be recognized for her human rights reporting on apartheid in South Africa for NPR, her CNN series on Zimbabwe, and her PBS human rights TV magazine.

Hunter-Gault’s long resume of prestigious accolades also includes her being the first African American to give a commencement speech at the University of Georgia in 1988. In 1992 she chronicled her monumental experiences for the public in her memoir In My Place, followed by her 2006 book New News Out of Africa: Uncovering African’s Renaissance, and her 2012 book To the Mountaintop: My Journey Through the Civil Rights Movement.

Hunter-Gault will be honored at Black Enterprise’s 2015 Women of Power Summit alongside Susan L. Taylor, Pam Grier, and Dr. Beverly Daniel Tatum.
