Monday marked the anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s assassination.
To honor his legacy, the Macon-Bibb County National Association for the Advancement of Colored People reached out to Middle Georgians, asking for their support toward peace, prosperity and justice.
"It's kind of like what Dr. Martin Luther King wanted us to do is get together and make some type of progress for the people regardless of the people's color, nationality, race or religion was and so what we're trying to begin to do at the NAACP is to recapture those feelings of Dr. King," said Macon Bibb County's NAACP member Leslie Booker.
Booker's uncle, David is the new president of the branch. With a new leader, comes a new approach.
"Today we do the 'We are One.' Tomorrow we start out in the community making contact with people getting them to understand our plan, hearing what they have to share about their situation as well."
David Booker wants to achieve peace in the community, prosperity in the neighborhood and justice across the city.
"But justice has to be with fairness and equality for all," said David Booker.
On April 23rd the NAACP Macon Bibb County Branch will host a summit at Buck Melton Center off of Sessions Drive beginning at 9AM.
