Cooper to Receive NAMIC’s Mickey Leland Humanitarian Achievement Award

Anderson Cooper, host of CNN's Anderson Cooper 360, will receive the 2007 Mickey Leland Humanitarian Achievement Award from the National Association for Multi- ethnicity in Communications.

The Mickey Leland Humanitarian Achievement Award was established in 1992 in memory of the late Congressman from Texas and his lifelong advocacy of social justice and equality for people around the world.

The award will be presented at the 21st Annual NAMIC Conference at the Hilton New York. The event’s honorary co-chairs are Comcast executive vice president David L. Cohen and Turner Broadcasting System president of domestic distribution Andrew T. Heller.
