Denzel Washington

Hollywood actor Denzel Washington is to be honoured for his work in helping black students complete their education.

The actor recently directed and starred in The Great Debaters - a movie inspired by a black college debate team battling an all-white Ivy League university team during the legal segregation of the 1930s.

And now Washington and his wife Pauletta will be lauded by the United Negro College Fund (UNCF) - which will bestow upon the couple the prestigious Frederick D. Patterson Award, a prize given to those who have made a significant contribution to advancing black education.

The pair will receive the award at a UNCF dinner in New York on 7 March (08).
