About this title

Synopsis:

Since 1964, Just Communities of Arkansas (or JCA, formerly the National Conference of Christians and Jews/National Conference for Community and Justice) has given the National Humanitarian Award to publically recognize civic leaders who have worked to build communities and advance opportunity for the common good. In 1987, JCA was granted the opportunity to also present the Father Joseph H. Biltz Award to outstanding community servants. In total, 135 individuals have been recognized with one of these awards. Collected here are their stories, which are heart warming, funny, and--most of all--inspiring. The book also includes photos of every honoree and 75 candid photos.  The index includes a complete history of the awards and the text of a speech that was never delivered because of a bomb threat at the 2nd Humanitarian Dinner in 1965.

About the Author:

Ruth D. Shepherd has served as executive director of Just Communities of Arkansas since 2000.
