Caroline Kennedy has presented Profile in Courage awards to a Google executive who launched a Facebook page that sparked protests in Egypt and a North Carolina school board member who fought redistricting over racial segregation concerns.
A North Carolina school board member who fought redistricting plans because of racial segregation concerns and a Google executive who launched a Facebook page that sparked protests in Egypt were given the annual John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage Award on Monday.
Redenbaugh said when she heard about the redistricting plan that would largely be based on the area's segregated neighborhoods, she couldn't shake off a Bible passage in Genesis that said all humans were worthy of dignity and respect.
"There is no dignity in segregation," she said.
