The late Vivian Malone was the first African American student to graduate from the University of Alabama.  She and James Hood famously defied Governor George Wallace, who “stood in the school house door” to block them from enrolling at the all-white university.  

In honor of her powerful and brave stance, this namesake award will be bestowed to Representative Lucy McBath, (D-GA, 6th District) for her steadfast gun control advocacy and election victory after the tragic death of her son.  

Presenter: Sharon Malone, M.D., sister of Vivian Malone
