The White House announced Friday that President Joe Biden will award the Medal of Freedom to actor Denzel Washington.
The Presidential Medal of Freedom is the Nation’s highest civilian honor to award people for their contributions to public society.
Washington will be the only actor recognized by Biden in 2022 for the Medal of Freedom.
The star of many popular action and drama films, Washington has won two Academy Awards and two Golden Globes.
In 2016, Washington won the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the Golden Globes ceremony which featured a montage of many of the best roles of his career.
Washington is a man of deep personal faith, telling a crowd of Christian men in 2021 about the importance of praying daily and serving their fellow man.
“The world has changed,” Washington said. “What is our role as a man? The John Wayne formula is not quite a fit right now. But strength, leadership, power, authority, guidance, patience are God’s gift to us as men. We have to cherish that, not abuse it.”
He also encouraged men to continue praying to God.
“Stay on your knees. Watch me, but listen to God,” he said. “I hope that the words in my mouth and the meditation of my heart are pleasing in God’s sight, but I’m human. I’m just like you.”

Man, 30, Savagely Beats 2 Women At Auburn Store, Crashes During Getaway: Police
A 30-year-old North Dighton became a one-man wrecking crew on the morning of July 30 when he went berserk at an Auburn gas station when he attacked two women for no reason, crashed his car as he tried to make his getaway, and then got into another fight.
Kyle Fitta got angry on the morning of July 30 when a gas station on Route 12 wouldn't take his credit card to pay for his purchases, the Auburn Police Department. Rather than accept that, Fitta began to punch the 19-year-old female cashier in the face, officials said. The girl's mom, who owns the store, rushed over to help, but Fitta viciously attacked her.
He punched and kicked the women and threw them against the floor and into store displays, the police department said. A customer who saw the attack from outside ran inside and scared off Fitta, who grabbed the mother's keys and cellphone as he rushed out of the door, authorities added.
The daughter received a broken nose in the beating, a black eye, and a severe cut above her left eye that doctors had to stitch closed. Her mom also had a black eye, several cuts and bruises, and a back injury from the attack, Auburn police said. Authorities expect the women to recover from the attack.
Fitta sped off in his car down the Mass Turnpike before he caused a car crash and violently attacked another driver, police said. Massachusetts State Police had to fight to get him to put on the handcuffs and get him into a patrol car.
Officials charged Fitta with unarmed robbery, assault and battery causing serious injury, three counts of assault with a dangerous weapon, and two counts of malicious destruction of property, Auburn police said.
