MLK Day Observance In Cadiz

Genesis Express held its 19th annual Doctor Martin Luther King, Junior, Freedom March in Cadiz Monday. Forty-six years ago, Dr. King marched in city streets across the nation to promoting racial equality. Today, more than 100 people marched through the streets of Cadiz to honor their sacrifices and the progress that has been made. Naomi Birl remembers the days of segregation, and that’s one of the reasons this march continues today.

She also challenges African Americans to take advantage of the opportunities available to them, such as voting rights and education, encouraging students to stay in school. Her message complemented the day’s theme, “Home Is the First School House,” a point delivered by the Rev. Moses Radford, who spoke to a standing-room-only crowd of more than 200 at Bloomfield Missionary Baptist Church.

Radford says education, and therefore change, starts in the home.

The program included scripture readings and prayers by area pastors, as well as music by the Trigg County Community Choir and a special rendition of “Lift Every Voice” by Trinity Choir.
