ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany has transformed in the past 50 years and Mayor Dorothy Hubbard said you have to look backward in order to know where you’ve been and allow that to grow forward.

Hubbard said she believes Albany is a different kind of city now.

“The leadership of this city and the partnerships we’ve developed in this city make it much better for us to think that we can move forward," Hubbard said.

The mayor added we can’t forget the Civil Rights Movement because we cannot let it happen again.
