Tybee Island is gearing up for their MLK Parade and Human Rights Celebration.
The 6th annual event will take place on Saturday, Jan. 12 at 2:00 p.m.
This year’s theme is “All Life is Interrelated in a Single Garment of Destiny,” a nod to a quote by Martin Luther King Jr.:
All this is simply to say that all life is interrelated. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality; tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.
Dr. Ann Levett, Superintendent of Savannah Chatham County Public Schools, will serve as this year’s Grand Marshal.
The parade will travel 10 blocks from 14th Street to the Tybee YMCA.
Parade members are asked to line up at 1:00 p.m. in the 14th Street Parking lot.
Civic organizations, non-profits, businesses and churches are welcome to participate. Students in the parade will be given a special gift — free admittance to the Tybee Lighthouse (with a valid school ID).
