MLK celebration

a rousing success

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s Birthday was commemorated by a community forum sponsored by the members of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority. The forum was at Greater Grove Street M.B. Church and comprised of community leaders from a variety of areas. The discussion from the panel was focused on ideas and suggestions of continuing Dr. King’s vision for strengthening our community.

Each panelist was given time to present their suggestions and take questions from the audience. It was a highly energized, electric discussion among panelists and the audience.

It was a breath of fresh air and I say thank you to the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority for sponsoring this forum and panelist members Rev. Casey D. Fisher, State Rep. George Flaggs, Mayor Paul Winfield, NAACP Rep. Bobbie Morrow, Vicksburg Warren School Assistant Superintendent Paula Johnson, District Attorney Ricky Smith, Vicksburg Police Chief Walter Armstrong, Warren County Sheriff Martin Pace and moderator Willie Thomas of the Minister and Blacks in Government.
