See the Film. Meet the Film-Makers: “A Principled Man: Rev. Leon Sullivan” Tuesday Feb. 24 at the HM
As part of Black History Month, the Huntington Museum of Art (HMOA) will show “A Principled Man: Rev. Leon Sullivan,” the documentary that aired nationally on PBS and that was produced by MotionMasters. Our CEO, Diana Sole Walko, served as executive producer for the film and became a close friend of the film’s subject. Her five trips to Africa to work with Rev. Sullivan and his foundation will provide keen insight into the man, his work, and his journey in developing the Global Sullivan Principles—a code of conduct for human rights and equal opportunity.
Join her for an introduction to the film and a Q&A after the showing on Tuesday, Feb. 24, 2009, beginning at 7 pm at the Huntington Museum of Art in Huntington, W.Va.
“Help us to work to make, not only our companies, but our nation and our world, better for all God’s people.” – Rev. Leon Sullivan, 1922-2001.
