In December, Macon-Bibb County’s Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Commission announced a series of events to celebrate and remember the life and impact of the civil rights leaders. The next sponsored event is an Interdenominational Church Service at New Fellowship Baptist Church. A full calendar of events has been posted online, and it is updated to reflect new events that are added.
Events have included the annual March to Government Center, tours at the Tubman African American Museum, the Beloved Community Symposium, a performance by world-renowned violinist Robert McDuffie at Beulahland Baptist Church (more information below), and more.
Members of the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Commission are: Commissioner Elaine Lucas, Commissioner Larry Schlesinger, Sam Henderson, Reverend Dr. Henry Ficklin, Dominique Johnson, Reverend Evans Brown, June O’Neal, Dr. Any Ambrose, Mike Gardner, and Tony Lowden.
