CNN and the Honorable Louisiana Supreme Court Justice Bernette Johnson to Receive Lawyers' Committee's Distinguished Civil Rights Advocate Award

The Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law will bestow upon CNN and the Honorable Louisiana Supreme Court Justice Bernette Johnson its Distinguished Civil Rights Advocate Award at a reception hosted in conjunction with the National Bar Association´s 85th Annual Convention in New Orleans, Louisiana. During the event, hosted at the Marriott New Orleans on Wednesday, August 11, 2010, 4 - 6 p.m., CNN and Justice Johnson will be recognized for stellar civil rights achievements and efforts to champion the cause of equal justice.

"We are delighted to honor CNN and Soledad O'Brien, who will formally accept the award, for their outstanding commitment to coverage of minority and underserved communities," said Lawyers' Committee Executive Director Barbara Arnwine. "Ms. O'Brien's groundbreaking "Black in America" and "Latino in America" series were remarkable. Also, as the fifth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina approaches, it is an added privilege to recognize CNN's unwavering and excellent coverage of the Gulf Coast during and following the most devastating natural disaster in U.S. history, which continues to adversely affect minority and low-income communities."

Said O'Brien, "I am delighted to be accepting the Distinguished Civil Rights Advocate Award on behalf of CNN. We work hard to live up to our diversity mission "We Are What We Air" always seeking to bring all voices to the forefront in our reporting. We are pleased to be recognized by the Lawyers' Committee for our role in shedding light on people and communities impacted by the important civil rights issues of our day."
