 KODAK'S KAY R. WHITMORE RECEIVES
 NATIONAL EQUAL JUSTICE AWARD
 ROCHESTER, N.Y., Oct. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Eastman Kodak Company (NYSE: EK) Chairman, President and CEO Kay R. Whitmore has received the 1992 National Equal Justice Award from the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, Inc.
 The award, presented annually, recognizes an individual whose leadership and actions in business, government, community activities, culture and other fields have led to tangible advancements in human equality and justice. The award was presented during the Seventh National Equal Justice Award Dinner in New York City.
 In accepting the award, Whitmore cited a number of Kodak's ongoing efforts to support both business and cultural diversity including:
 -- the Kodak 21st Century Learning Challenge, which helps students improve their performance in science, math and technology;
 -- contributions to the United Negro College Fund, as well as to a number of colleges and universities such as Howard University, North Carolina A&T and Florida A&M;
 -- the Kodak Minority Supplier Program which has increased the amount of business Kodak does with minority suppliers by 45 percent in each of the last three years;
 -- support of Harlem's Schomburg Center for research in African American culture, and
 -- a commitment at Kodak to building a competitive workforce through development of a more diverse company.
 "Diversity is not just about corporate conscience, it's about corporate success. And it literally transcends equality of opportunity. If each one of us is utilized to the maximum extent of our talents, skills and experiences, then our economy, our nation, our businesses and each one of us will be the stronger for it," Whitmore said.
 Previous recipients of the National Equal Justice Award are Felix Rohatyn, Lazard Freres & Company; J. Richard Munro, Time Warner Inc.; David Kearns, Xerox Corporation; James Robinson, American Express Company, and Roberto Goizueta, The Coca-Cola Company.
