Scenes from MLK Day Weekend


THANK YOU to everyone who came out for our very first Youth Pep Rally in honor of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on Saturday, January 13th and the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Unity March on Monday, January 15th. 

We are deeply grateful to our outstanding pep rally performers and special guests for sharing their talents and energy: 7 HellHounds of Akashic Purple/Omega Psi Phi, Keedron Bryant, Elite Georgia Diamondz, Jones-A-Phones, Vario, and DJ X-Alent. Special thanks to our Emcee Sonya Walker, member of NAACP Camden’s Executive Committee and Freedom Fund Committee. Thank you to the PSA Rec Center for having us.

We appreciate Khalil Maycock of WJXT4 The Local Station / News4JAX for his coverage.

We are grateful to the families, churches, organizations, clubs, public officials, and individuals who joined the Unity March from Kingsland Lions Park to First African Missionary Baptist Church of Kingsland. Special honors to our Grand Marshal Ms. Iris Waye. We thank Rev. Dr. K. C. Davis and FAMB for opening their doors to the community.

The powerful program included Superintendent Dr. Tracolya Green of Camden County Schools, FAMBC Male Chorus, Andrie Phillips & United, Minga Williams, Fredrick Myers and Pastor Joshua V.M. Davis of Westlight Missionary Baptist Church.
All Foods Matter, Bird Boxx, K2 Catering, and Tony's Outrigger served up refreshments. Robbin's Nest was unable to participate but we thank them for their support in promoting the march.
We thank the City of Kingsland and Kingsland Police Department for the safety escort for the procession.
