Keepers of the Dream Freedom Award

Traditionally bestowed in conjunction with the Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday, this year - mindful of COVID-19 concerns - Mayor Greg Fischer will present the prestigious Freedom Award at a to be determined date in Spring of 2022!

The Freedom Award will be given to the citizen who best exemplifies the ideals of Dr. King's vision, while the celebration will honor and recognize all the outstanding citizens of Louisville who have received this honor. The event serves as a time for the community to come together and reflect on past struggles while celebrating forward progress towards a brighter future.

As we approach the warmer months, keep an eye out on our website and Facebook page for more details on the Freedom Award as well as this February's Black History Month events and the Juneteenth celebrations.

This event is sponsored by Republic Bank
