ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Albany Civil Rights Institute is preparing for several special events during Black History Month.

Thursday night, February 6th, Benjamin Crump, the attorney for Trayvon Martin's family, will speak at the institute.

The freedom singers will give a special performance Saturday and on February 27th, all Dougherty County Public High School choirs will join the freedom singers for a concert at Shiloh Baptist Church.

"We should embrace the history of black folk every day. But since this month has special significance, we would love to have to community come out and support all the activities," said W. Frank Wilson, Interim Director.

All the upcoming events are free and open to the public.
