On Monday, the World Law Foundation bestowed its highest honor upon Ambassador Andrew Young.

During the ceremony, Young talked and shared stories about his days in activism and getting into “good trouble” for Martin Luther King Jr. and Jimmy Carter.


“Anywhere there was trouble, President Carter said, ‘Andy, why don’t you go and check it out?’,” Young said.

The World Peace and Liberty Award is known as the Nobel Prize of the legal world.
