Derrick A. Bell
Ethical Ambition: Living a Life of Meaning and Worth

“Courage is a decision you make to act in a way  that works through your own fear for the greater  good as opposed to pure self-interest. Courage  means putting at risk your immediate self-interest for what you believe is right.” 

The Derrick Bell  Legacy Award honors critical race theorists (CRT), critical race studies scholars, and progressive educators-activists committed to advancing social justice and educational race equity through their teaching, research, writing, and/or direct community action. Positive actions that illuminate our insight into racial injustice and the human condition require courage and commitment and are worthy of respect and acknowledgement. This award recognizes individuals whose career accomplishments demonstrate personal courage and professional commitment to supporting and advocating for the “faces at the bottom of the well.”
