Is Eva Longoria Parker a Civil Rights Leader?

According to the National Civil Rights Museum in Memphis, Tennesse—there’s no doubt about it.

Last night, the museum honored Longoria-Parker with a Freedom Award for her philanthropy, her advocacy for Latino rights, and her unwavering commitment to peace, justice and equality.

Eva was positively giddy to be getting the award. The Desperate Housewives actress posted the following on her Facebook page, yesterday: “On my way to receive the Legacy Award from the Ntl Civil Rights Museum! Very exciting, can’t wait!”

We can't think of anyone who deserves it more!
