SIMEON BOOKER AWARD FOR COURAGE Date: Tues. Oct 3 | Time: 6P-9p | Location: Ford Theatre| Simeon Booker was a courageous and pioneering African-American journalist during the Civil Rights Movement. His work helped unify the fight for equality. This dinner was created, in his honor, to celebrate his life-long achievements and to highlight those torchbearers who have risked life and limb in pursuit of the same things Simeon Booker stood for – justice and equality. Event Time: 7P Date: October 3, 2017 Location: The DeYor Center for Performing Arts 260 W. Federal Street, Youngstown, Ohio 44503. Contact us: P: (330) 207-4467 E: Ken Nwadike Jr. of San Diego wanted to do something different for the Boston Marathon after the terrorist strike there. So at the next race, 2014, he stood at the finish line giving free hugs to every finisher. That simple act catapulted Nwadike — the “FREE HUGS GUY” — into a three-year course from the finish line to the protest line. He is now found between angry citizens and police officers in American cities trying to prevent protests from erupting in violence. For this life’s role, the Ohio Nonviolence Week committee has selected Nwadike as the national honoree of the 2017 Simeon Booker Award for Courage. While viewing the devastation of the 2013 bombing of the Boston Marathon, I was determined to be a participant in the next race. I failed to qualify by just 23 seconds, so I decided to attend the event in a different way. I provided free hugs to runners as encouragement along the route. This simple act made national news headlines and lifted runners spirits. Hugs produced smiles and gave runners an extra boost as they ran. Ken will be joined at an Oct. 3 dinner by the 2017 local honoree Terry Vicars — a tireless activist for the Valley’s impoverished. Officially of Catholic Charities, Vicars has spent his adult life standing up for others — especially the homeless, single mothers and the marginalized. He has been a youth minister, a manager at St. Vincent DePaul Kitchen and founded the Dorothy Day House in Youngstown. Nwadike and Vicars will be honored with the 2017 Simeon Booker Award for Courage as part of October’s seventh annual Ohio Nonviolence Week. Date: Tues.Read more…
