Annual Book Award

For to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.

— Nelson Mandela

Students are chosen for the award by consensus from the professional staff in each of their schools. Winners receive a book and a $500 check and can be acknowleged at the NAACP Celebration of Scholars held in the Spring. The award was established in memory of Jack  Charlton, the first President of All Together.
