National Civil Rights Museum to Honor Al Gore, Diane Nash


The National Civil Rights Museum will honor former vice president Al Gore and long-time civil rights activist Diane Nash at this year's Freedom Awards on October 28th.

Gore, now an environmental activist, won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007 for his work on climate change.

Nash founded the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) in 1960, and was active in "freedom rides" and other civil rights movement events.
