Memorial March for Martin Luther King
A congregation of people from all walks of life gathered to celebrate the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on Monday. His push to end discrimination was a defining moment during the Civil Rights Movement.
Bishop Frank Ray of Macon says, “He taught us how to live together, he taught us how to talk to one another.”
The rain and cold wasn’t enough to stop Middle Georgians from marching. Young and old, black or white those things didn’t matter according to Pastor Billy McFadden at the Greater Allen Chapel African Methodist Episcopal Church.
McFadden says, “It’s a very significant day. Primarily because of the work Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. along with so many others around this country and indeed right here in our community did to make things more…fair.”
For some the march symbolized unity and equality. For others it was a way to keep the dream alive.
