Albany- Where we were, where we are, and where we are going was the topic of discussion at the C.B. King Roundtable Forum.

Concerned members of the Albany community and many who worked with King say they worry that many young people are not aware of who King was and what he struggled for.

J.T. Johnson King's widow, Carole King, says she is not surprised when a lot of young people don't know who C.B. King was, but she says it's not their fault.

Most people at the forum seemed to agree, if more people tried to learn from C.B. King's undying commitment to civil rights and equality, King's legacy will continue to be living example for everyone.
