Sullivan Center Hope Award

Recently, the Sullivan Center Hope Award was presented to recipients for their indefatigable excellence in leadership and for inspiring hope for humanity.  The Hope Award was created to inspire hope among humanity as the late Rev. Dr. Leon H. Sullivan indefatigably labored to provide hope in a world abounding in urban hopelessness.
