Citizen Diplomat award winners, poet Maya Angelou, former Senator J. William Fulbright in 1993
For the collaborative agricultural (Haitian chocolate trade initiative) effort your big Brothers have been engaged in with De La Sol Haiti for the past two years, TB/along with DLSH have been named the Global Ties U.S. organization's (formerly the National Council for International Visitors, or NCIV) Citizen Diplomat of 2014! It's the organization's highest honor, having been awarded only 8 (now 9) times since the award's creation back in 1987 (with Senator J. William Fulbright being the first recipient)!
We're extremely honored and humbled to join the ranks of this, so far, very small group of people deemed persons of positive international impact!
And, the crazy kicker, family, is that one of the recipients of this honor is the legendary poet/activist and national treasue, Maya Angelou (who's life and work legacy is on our list of near future flavors to make)!
