Soledad O'Brien to Receive Spirit of the League Award in Atlanta


The Urban League of Greater Atlanta will hold its 3rd Annual Spirit of The League Luncheon on Friday, June 14 at the Twelve Hotel at Atlantic Station in Midtown at noon.

Soledad O'Brien, who is currently a CNN special correspondent, will be recognized as the League's special honoree. She recently entered into a unique production and distribution agreement with the network to produce long-form programming specials through her company, Starfish Media Group. Launching this month, the 360 media production company and distributor will be dedicated to uncovering and producing stories that take a challenging look at often divisive issues of race, class, wealth opportunity and personal stories.

"In prior years we were honored to have celebrated Tyler Perry and Monique as honorees for the Spirit of the League Award. This year we are thrilled that Soledad O'Brien will be recognized as our special honoree for her ongoing contributions to local and international communities," Urban League of Greater Atlanta CEO Nancy Flake Johnson said.
