DONALSONVILLE, GA (WALB) - As that KKK rally was held, the NAACP gathered to say "Not In Our Town." NAACP representatives met with religious and community leaders of Seminole County and the general public at the Macedonia Baptist Church to promote unity.

The NAACP is the oldest civil rights organization, and they represent any group that is being misrepresented or being treated unfairly.

"We denounce any hate group that comes here to try to separate this unity, and try to talk about the foreigners that come here. This is a land where all of us are foreigners," said President of the 21st District, Rev. Ezekiel Holley.

The "Not in our Town" Unity Rally was held an hour before and ran into the same time the KKK held their rally.
