MLK Luminary Award

Cut paper portrait piece of the MLK Luminary Award's namesake, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Dr. Jon McCuller's was one of the health care and community leaders recognized for his role in fighting COVID-19 at the 2022 MLK Luminary Awards. This award is the highest honor given by the City of Memphis and this piece not only acknowledges Dr. McCullers dedication to the fight against COVID-19, but the difficult work that Dr. King asked this country to do and led many activists to do.
