As far as Lord Farfax Community College is concerned, Karen White practices what Dr. Martin Luther King preached.
During the college's celebration of Martin Luther King Day, White, the president and director of the Afro-American Historical Association in The Plains, was presented with the “Walking King’s Talk” award. This award is given to an individual who makes a significant contribution to the enhancement of human rights, civil rights, social action, and civility.
White's historical association, founded in 1997, includes a genealogy research office, library and museum. The AAHA offers all residents in our multi-county community a variety of consciousness-raising and celebratory events and activities.
Dr. Judy Batson, LFCC Associate Vice President of Instruction, said, “Through Karen White's years of inspirational leadership embodying grace, courage, dignity and 'peacefulness' in the manner of Dr. Martin Luther King, the Afro-American Historical Association has blossomed and thrived as a community resource and meeting place where people from diverse walks of life can come, learn, commune and contribute in a positive way towards improved human relations in LFCC's service area and beyond.”
