Parade honors King's legacy
Community comes together on MLK Day

The atmosphere at Monday's parade celebrating the birth and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was one of unity, fellowship and pure happiness as people marched and sang along Statesboro's main streets. Sponsored by the Bulloch County Branch of the NAACP and its president, Pearl Brown, the parade, centered around the theme "One Nation, Under God, Working Together," featured church groups, military and school bands, floats and beauty queens. It also boasted a large number of exquisitely restored and customized cars, with their engines revving and chrome wheel spokes catching the afternoon light as spectators called from the sidewalks.
