MSNBC’s Alex Wagner to GWU

George Washington University will honor MSNBC’s Alex Wagner with its “Jackie and Rachel Robinson Society Community Recognition Award” next week.

Quick! Somebody make sure Mediaite‘s Tommy Christopher — who’s always ready to mention that he knows Wagner — is still breathing!

The award comes as part of GWU’s Jackie Robinson Night. The annual event commemorates the late baseball legend’s breakthrough into major league baseball and his impact on American history. Wagner is receiving the award for her past work as executive director of Not on Our Watch, an advocacy group for human rights around the world.

Professor Michael Long, associate professor of religion and peace and conflict studies, will deliver a lecture Robinson’s political and social activism.

The event is free and open to the public in Funger Hall, room 103. It runs from 7-9 p.m.
