2019 Celebrate Diversity Awards Banquet featuring Cyntoia Brown-Long

Cyntoia Brown-Long became a victim of sex trafficking and at the age of 16 was arrested for killing a man who had solicited her for sex. She was tried as an adult and was sentenced to life in prison without chance of parole. In prison, her life took a dramatic turn when the prison education principal took her under her wing and introduced her to a spiritual path.  While in prison, she finished high school and earned both an Associate’s and a Bachelor’s degree. In August she was granted clemency after serving 15 years. Her newly released book, “Free Cyntoia" chronicles Brown-Long's journey from being a sex-traffic survivor to becoming an advocate for criminal justice reform.

Proceeds from the banquet benefit student scholarships. The recipients of the Robert L. Duncan Community Champion Award and the Inclusive Excellence Awards will be recognized during the event, which is hosted by the Office of Institutional Diversity. Individual tickets for the event are $100 (VIP), $75. For more information or to purchase ticket(s), table(s) or for sponsorship opportunities,visit or call 806-742-7025.
