VALDOSTA, Ga. (WALB) – The Mu Omicron Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Incorporated marched these streets for the 12th year to commentate the legacy of the late Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

“It’s very important that we celebrate and honor him, to continue his legacy and the positive work that he did to change the world every day,” Charles Grissom, Mu Omicron Chapter, said.

Since the first march held in 2011, Mu Omicron has continued to upload the legacy of Dr. King. The chapter president says that while many may see this as a day off from school and work, they host events to give people an opportunity to memorialize their brother through service.

“Taking a few minutes out of the day to remember him and what he stood for,” Jailand Williams, Mu Omicron Chapter president, said. “Encouraging the people around us to continue on in his legacy and to serve the community.”
