ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

A packed house at Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church Thursday night enjoyed a special Black History Month concert. The Albany Civil Rights Institute Freedom Singers performed along with choir members from all Dougherty County High Schools.    

Freedom Singers say it's important to share the struggles and triumphs and music of the civil rights movement and keep the traditions alive.

"We made history actually performing here for the civil rights  museum. It is actually really something. Really Proud. Real exciting," said Elijah Wyatt.
