Albany's Civil Rights Institute

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Tonight the Albany Civil Rights Institute was awarded a generous donation.

Representatives from the King Day Committee presented the board with a $13,464 check to help continue Dr. Martin Luther King's dream. One board member says they're grateful to receive the check.  

"I can imagine how the children of Israel felt when the Lord parted the Red Sea, that's the kind of feeling that we have at the institute about the support that we get from the King celebration," said C.W. Grant, Board Member, Albany Civil Right's Institute.  

All of the funds come from the generous donations made by Albany's local businesses.
