Bullock County residents Commissioner John McGowan, Kimberly Patrick, Elder Henry and Minister Pinkie Rodgers attended the Martin Luther King, Jr.’s Birthday Celebration.

Standing Strong: A Community Celebration of God’s Love was the theme. The event was held at the Dexter Avenue King Memorial Baptist Church in downtown Montgomery. This was the 44th year of celebrating Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday.

He would have been 90 years old. There was a special unveiling of the bust of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The festivities included local high school bands, state and local officials, musicians and churches.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said, “The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”
