New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu is going to receive the John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage Award.
He's being recognized for his role in removing four Confederate monuments in that city. Landrieu says the monuments represent a dark chapter in American history that should neither be forgotten, misunderstood or glorified.
He'll be presented with the prestigious award on May 20th at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum in Boston.
