Hawks honor the 1st Black Medal of Honor recipient since Vietnam

Over the past six years, The Atlanta Hawks and Crown Royal have collaborated to pay homage to military soldiers and veterans.  One special recipient, Alwyn Cashe, recently received the Medal of Honor posthumously by President Joe Biden at the White House in December 2021. Cashe’s sister, Kasinal Cashe White, speaks about her brother whose act of valor was so remarkable that it saved lives, but ultimately cost him his own.
