This year the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center is presenting its highest honor to Amal and George Clooney; the late Congressman John Lewis; and lawyer and social justice activist Bryan Stevenson for their lifetimes of advocacy for freedom.

The International Freedom Conductor Awards Gala is Oct. 16 at the Duke Energy Convention Center.

Joining Cincinnati Edition to discuss the event is National Underground Railroad Freedom Center Vice President of Marketing & Communications Cody Hefner.
