This May, founder Steven Spielberg's USC Shoah Foundation will host their 20th Anniversary Ambassadors for Humanity Gala, and they have a very special guest coming to the event. 

President Barack Obama will speak about "common values" and "shared responsibilities in building a brighter future," according to the USC Shoah Foundation - Institute for Visual History and Education, a nonprofit established by Spielberg in 1994, a year after he completed "Schindler's List." 

Spielberg will present the Institute's Ambassador for Humanity Award to President Obama, for his philanthropic work and commitment to education. Spielberg has a new book coming from HarperCollins on March 25: Testimony: The Legacy of Schindler's List and the USC Shoah Foundation -- A 20th Anniversary Commemorationwhich combines, for the first time, the behind-the-scenes story of the making of "Schindler’s List" with the history of the organization inspired by the Oscar-winning film. 

The gala will go down May 7 in Los Angeles. TNT is a presenting sponsor.
