Slavery was abolished in this country long ago, and Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X fought during the Civil Rights Movement nearly a half-century ago, yet we still have to confront the fact that racism is still very real. Keynote speaker Andrew Young will lead such discussion in the twelfth installment of the Racial Justice Breakfast. Young has long been a figure in religious and political spheres over the last 50 years. During the 1960s Civil Rights Movement, Young was a close friend of Dr. King, and during the presidency of Jimmy Carter he was appointed Ambassador to the United Nations. Participants are encouraged to be active in the conversation as dialogue will reflect upon the personal and community-wide impact of racism. A registration fee is required and additional donations will be accepted. The Breakfast will be held Sunday, March 18 at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center from 7:30-9 a.m. 50 E. Freedom Way, downtown.
