Joyce Ladner and Robert Raben were honored for their careers dedicated to improving civil rights of minorities and others in Mississippi and throughout the country. Speakers included former US Attorney General, Eric Holder, and Marian Wright Edelman, founder and president of the Children’s Defense Fund.
