* George M. Frederickson passed away in 2008, and this award is being given for the first time, in his honor.
He was the Edgar E. Robinson Professor of United States History, and one of the faculty leaders who helped create the Center for Comparative Studies in Race and Ethnicity,
as well as its Research Institute.

He was a most influential scholar and teacher who helped to change the way historians, social scientists and others think about race and racism. He believed that scholars could and should make a difference through their writing and teaching. His commitment to equality and justice exemplified these principles.
