MLK Choir?

Humm... interesting. I can't help but wonder if the choir was temporarily renamed for this event. Either way, the name has a nice ring to it, and I'll bet they sound wonderful.

Will Augusta Have a MLK Parade on Broad St.?

Dr. King was a great man
His manner of preaching Peace over Violence
most likely averted a Racial Civil war in the USA.
An it surely save 1000's if not 100's of 1000's of lives.
It opened closed doors that now only require a person to apply or walk better themselves.

So yes it is a honest question.

Instead of having a few Black Church and a Black College gatherings, why not share his message of Unity with everyone in ARC.

Black Churches?

nocnoc, I agree the message of Dr. King is for all. That said, First Presbyterian Church downtown would identify itself as a church for all races, but who at this time has more white members than any other race. The meeting on Monday (just like all services there) are open to all.
