2020 Hall of Fame Inductee
Lynn Hart

Lynn is a survivor and has overcome great odds to become an inspiration to many. He is a strong advocate of his African American and Native American heritage. He proudly served his country as a Marine. As a rodeo bull fighter, he has literally saved lives protecting bull riders from the wrath of 2000 lb. bulls. Lynn is a community activist and was very instrumental in getting the State of South Dakota to be one of the last four to recognize Dr. Martin Luther King’s birthday as a National holiday.

Lynn’s work also help South Dakota replace Columbus Day with Native American Day. On January 13, 1992, Mrs. Coretta Scott King, music legend Stevie Wonder and then FBI director William Sessions, honored and presented Lynn with the “National Making of King Holiday Award,” in Washington, D.C. on behalf of the Martin Luther King Federal Holiday Committee. Lynn was a personal guest of the King family’s 50th Anniversary of the “I Have a Dream Speech and March on Washington” in 2013. Additionally Lynn is just a humble and good man with a servant’s heart.
