Together We Can Change Things


LOXLEY, Alabama -- The Loxley Area Martin Luther King Group hosted its 14th annual march to honor Dr. Martin Luther King on Monday, Jan. 21.

The program included a welcome and invocation from Pastor Markes Mosley of the Ebeneezer Missionary Baptist Church; song presentation, “I Love You (Lord Today),” by A.J. Fowler; and presentation of the Sojourner Truth poem “Ain’t I A Woman,” by Tylesa Gully.

Guest speaker for the event was Dr. Reginald Crenshaw, director of Title III programs at Bishop State Community College and District 3 representative to the Mobile County School Board.

The program concluded with the singing of “We Shall Overcome.” The annual program is organized by Gloria Autry and Ronnie McBride Jr.
