Ok, so I’m bundling all of this exciting news in one post… First, check out President Barack Obama on the cover of GQ magazine’s special 20th year edition! Second, the President has named seventeen recipients of the Presidential Medal of Freedom!
The Presidential Medal of Freedom is the Nation’s highest civilian honor, presented to individuals who have made especially meritorious contributions to the security or national interests of the United States, to world peace, or to cultural or other significant public or private endeavors. The awards will be presented at the White House on November 24th.
Here’s the list of honorees which includes some of my favorite entertainers James Taylor and Barbra Streisand:
Yogi Berra (posthumous)
Shirley Chisholm (posthumous)
Billy Frank, Jr. (posthumous)
Katherine G. Johnson
Minoru Yasui (posthumous)
