Professor Harris Receives President’s Award from NAACP

Professor Roger Harris received the President’s Award from the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP).

Professor Harris is one of four awardees to receive the President’s Award from the Boston branch of the NAACP. The President’s Award is a distinguished honor given to community leaders who are “actively challenging society to end discrimination, embrace diversity, and ensure greater opportunity for all people.”

Professor Harris received the award on September 28, 2013, at the Annual Freedom Fund Dinner at the Westin Copley Place, Boston. The event, hosted by the Boston NAACP, featured the presentation of awards to individuals in eight different categories. U.S. Secretary of State John F. Kerry was also in attendance to receive the Thurgood Marshall Lifetime Achievement Award.
