Born into one of the most powerful and controversial families in the history of the South -- that of Alabama's segregationist former governor George Wallace -- Peggy Wallace Kennedy now stands apart from her past. She's become one of America's most important voices for peace and reconciliation. When Wallace Kennedy speaks at The Alden in McLean, she'll discuss her childhood years living behind the gates of the Governor's Mansion, as well as her present-day work as a civil rights activist. Her Martin Luther King Jr. celebration A Walk to Redemption highlights her personal journey, leaving behind her father's infamous "segregation forever!" legacy. Let her story capture your heart and remind you that none of us can be responsible for the circumstances of our birth, but all of us will be held accountable for who we will become.
