LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — A Louisville community activist has been granted a full federal pardon by President Donald Trump.

Christopher 2X runs a nonprofit devoted to guiding youths to lead productive lives. He also often acts as a conduit between Louisville's African American community and police and city officials during times of tension.

He was among 26 people pardoned Wednesday by Trump. The pardon was for federal drug-related charges in the 1990s.

2X was also pardoned by former Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin last year.
