Civil Rights reunion aims toward youth

Posted: Updated:

People celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Southwest Georgia Civil Rights Movement focused on work young African Americans are doing today.

The reunion is broken down into three segments. Yesterday focused on the past. Today... It's the present. Tomorrow will be the future.

Raven Williams says she learned more about the civil rights movement at the reunion than she ever has before.

"We really don't learn about the Civil Right movement in school and they don't really like to go into detail about it, but I really like this reunion," Williams.

There will be a children's program tonight at 7 at the HPER gym at Albany State University.

The reunion wraps up tomorrow.
