The Southern Center for Human Rights (SCHR) is thrilled to celebrate Virginia’s repeal of the death penalty and to honor the bold, persistent advocacy of Dale Brumfield, Michael Stone, Rev. Dr. LaKeisha Cook, and Benjamin Hoyne, the abolitionists who combined their talents for a multi-pronged approach that made Virginia the first southern state to end capital punishment, with our 2021 Frederick Douglass Human Rights Award.
With this award, SCHR honors their effective and innovative advocacy; unshakable commitment to seeking an end to the death penalty in Virginia and across the nation; and the palpable compassion that they express for those whom society would discard.
The event will feature remarks from Reginald Dwayne Betts, acclaimed poet, memoirist, teacher, and 2021 MacArthur Fellow. There will also be a special performance from Voices of Note!
