Yesterday was the actual birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. His birthday is celebrated as a national holiday on the 3rd Monday in January which happens to be 1/20/2014. Though there are many events scheduled in the Atlanta area, I will share with you an event that I promised a gentleman that I recently met.
A couple of weeks ago I met Mr. Eugene Edwards and his lovely wife at a post office. Mr. Edwards happens to be the President of Henry County Georgia NAACP. He sent me some information about some events that are happening in his area. I am late posting this event but I hope some of you see it and attend.
