Photo Gallery: Century Celebrates Legacy Of Martin Luther King, Jr.

January 22, 2013

Dozens turned out in Century Monday to honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

The Century-Flomaton Improvement Association held their annual motorcade, ending with a program and celebration at the Ag Building. Songs, essays and speeches honored King’s memory, looked forward to the future and honored local community leaders that have passed away. Guest speak Lorenzo Jones addressed the group before a community lunch.

    I believe Dr. King would indeed be proud of the young people I see in the photos above. I know most of them personally and commend them for their accomplishments.

    Dr. King would be rolling in his grave if he saw how his “legacy” has unfolded. We are more divided as a nation. We have become a nation of handouts instead of lift ups.
