Locals celebrate King’s legacy
Local community members and area leaders joined the local NAACP for their annual Freedom Fund Banquet on Saturday night at Mt. Harmony Baptist Church with the theme “Affirming America’s Promise” on their minds.
The annual event raises funds for the national Freedom Fund, which helps pay for the legal fees of those fighting discrimination practices, as well as the scholarship fund, which awards scholarships to local teens. This year’s scholarship went to Grambling State University student Gregory Manning.
