Hundreds march with message of peace and unity | Arts & Culture
At this year's Martin Luther King Jr. Day observance, people gathered at Recreation Centers in the North, East, West, and South parts of Macon-Bibb, then all marched to meet downtown at Government Center. Mayor Robert Reichert spoke about how old Dr. King was when he gave his iconic 'I Have a Dream Speech.' King was only 34 years old. Reichert then challenged everyone- no matter how young or old, to make a difference in their community. You can watch a MaconBibbTV feature on the march, here.
