The Princeton Prize in Race Relations Philadelphia Committee is pleased to recognize Simone Gibson from the Friends Central school as the recipient of the Philadelphia 2016 Princeton Prize in Race Relations. Ms. Gibson conceptualized, planned, and organized a Different Voices, Same Vision Conference at her school. The Conference's goal was to promote an understanding of race and other forms of diversity by broadening the perspective of how students from different environments experience the world and to help them develop their own voices while honoring the perspectives of others. Her efforts have encouraged community members to see their similarities more than their differences. We were also pleased to award Certificates of Accomplishment to Dejah Bradshaw, Jaakirah Reid, Samuel Gerlach, Blessing Osazuwa, Marion Rosario, and Anurithi Senthil for their efforts towards promoting harmony between racial groups. For this years Awards Ceremony, the Committee is very honored to have as our keynote speaker, Steve Bandara from the Philadelphia Department of Parks and Recreation and Founder of the Anderson Monarchs Athletic Club. We would love a strong Princeton community showing at our Awards Ceremony to not only highlight and recognize the significance of the efforts undertaken by these young women and men, but to also show the City of Philadelphia our interest as a Club in being part of the civic dialogue.
