Dr. Frederick J. Streets, the Carl and Dorothy Bennet Professor of Pastoral Counseling at Wurzweiler School of Social Work, was presented the Rev. John LaFarge, S.J. Award by the Rev. Jeffrey P. von Arx, Ph.D., president of Fairfield University, during their annual Convocation observance of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., on January 20, 2011. Professor Streets delivered the keynote address.

LaFarge was the author of three books on racism and the founder of the Catholic Interracial Review and is perhaps best remembered for having established the Catholic Interracial Council in 1934. He also labored almost single-handedly to make American Catholics aware of the moral dimensions of racism in America.
