Former Ambassador Visits Georgia Southern University

Posted: Updated:
STATESBORO, GA -

On Monday, our nation paused to mark the national observance of Dr. King's birth.  Tonight, Georgia Southern University commemorates the life and legacy of the late civil rights leader with its annual celebration by bringing in one of Dr. King's closest allies, former Ambassador, U.S. Congressman and Atlanta Mayor Andrew Young.  Ambassador Young has worked tirelessly for more than half a century to end racism, war and poverty.

Young addressed the media before his speech tonight.  He says the world expects to share the dream of Dr. King but we're still facing challenges to make that a reality.

Young will take the stage at the Performing Arts Center at 7 o'clock.  The event is free and open to the public.
