“I love the Christopher Award slogan, Better to light one candle than to curse the darkness. I personally believe that with all my heart. I think the movie, ‘Coat of Many Colors,’ a true story from my childhood, really does throw a light on a lot of things like family, hope, love, kindness, understanding, and acceptance. It really spoke to the issue of bullying. I am very proud at how God works through me to shine a light, and to help heal a lot of hurt in a lot of people, and I am very proud of this award.”
Dolly Parton, executive producer “Coat of Many Colors” TV movie
