Nominate-MLK Jr. Parade Community Leader

Martin Luther King Jr.  a Baptist minister and social activist played a key role in the American civil rights movement from the mid-1950s until his assassination in 1968. King sought equality for African Americans, the economically disadvantaged and victims of injustice through peaceful protest. Locally, the Athens Anti-Discrimination Movement (AADM) has been a vital force in promoting the philosophies and goals of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., in the Athens-Clarke County community, especially in equal justice, opportunity, and economic advancement for all persons.

With this in mind,  organizers believe it’s important to honor leaders from Athens Clarke County African-American community; those who have paved the path before us and have contributed to the growth and advancement of colored people. Thus, we’re seeking to honor 3 leaders from the black community and the general public is welcomed to nominate someone they believe deserves recognition by filling out the form below. Thank You.
