As part of Black History Month, MotionMasters CEO Diana Sole Walko introduced the documentary “A Principled Man: Rev. Leon Sullivan” and conducted a Q&A after a showing at the Huntington Museum of Art.
As the film’s executive producer and a friend of the late Rev. Sullivan, she shared highlights from her five trips to Africa working with the Sullivan Foundation and about the man who mentored Martin Luther King, helped free Nelson Mandela and played a significant role in ending apartheid in South Africa.
The film, shown nationally on PBS, served as the catalyst for re-naming Broad Street as Leon Sullivan Way in honor of the Charleston native’s outstanding contributions to human rights and equal opportunity.
