Women’s March Leader Who Supports Farrakhan Receives Coretta Scott King Award

Tamika Mallory, the Women’s March co-president known for her refusal to condemn the anti-Semitic Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, received an award on Wednesday at Antioch College named after Coretta Scott King, the wife of Martin Luther King.

Mallory had repeatedly praised Farrakhan on social media, as well as attended rallies sponsored by his organization. Farrakhan has called Adolf Hitler a “very great man” and claimed Jews were behind the 9/11 terror attacks.

During the event at Antioch College, the Coretta Scott King Legacy Award was presented to Mallory for her nationally recognized activism in the matters of gun control, women’s rights, and police violence.

The Luncheon commemorated the legacy of King, an Antioch College alumna, and celebrated the achievements of individuals and organizations committed to advancing social justice, according to the school’s website.

During the Farrakhan controversy earlier this year, a regional chapter of Planned Parenthood revoked their decision to have Mallory give a keynote speech.
