Dawson - - One of Georgia's Supreme Court justices visited South Georgia Saturday for a special event in Dawson.

Supporters walked in one by one to take part in the annual NAACP Freedom Fund banquet.

Each year, the Terrell County Branch of the NAACP puts on the event, honoring an important difference maker.

This year's honoree is Georgia Supreme Court Justice Robert Benham. Judge Benham says organizations like the NAACP provide for the well being of all Americans.  

"If there were not organizations like the NAACP, I probably would not be sitting where I'm sitting now on the Supreme Court. The NAACP and organizations like it and citizens black and white of different religions and different persuasions all work to make the American dream a reality," Justice Benham says.

This year's theme was "Power Beyond Measure" and like usual, a slew of South Georgia community leaders attended to show their support.
