LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) -

Two women who helped lead East Texas in the pursuit of social justice and racial equality were honored on Thursday in Longview.

At the Maude Cobb Activity Center, the annual Unity Awards honored Alyce Maxey and Lyndell McAllister for their contributions to the community. Both have given countless hours to charities and community projects.

Maxey is perhaps best known for her decades of dedication to the Gregg County Historical Museum, and was humbled by the honor.

"It was really awesome because I don't do anything for publicity or otherwise. I do it from my heart and do it because I care," she said.

Several hundred people turned out for the honors ceremony today.

Maxey still works at the Gregg County Museum.
