ORLANDO – My mom, Ms. Frances Mae Williams, must have had the same dream because I can remember her one day saying, “enough is enough. We need a change in Meigs, Ga.” That was around 1967-1968. Well growing up out in the country of Meigs, Georgia was much different then, than now. You wouldn’t have liked it 63 years ago when I was born 1959, but that’s all I’m going to say about that. Because of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s persistence and consistence he was able to start a movement that still lasts until today. We as humans are learning to do better by each other by believing in equal opportunity and a better quality of life for everyone. That’s the goal. One of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s dreams was to one day see Black and white walking hand and hand as one human race. I, Jimmie Williams, feel we as a group of people are doing an awesome job of providing for the needs of others as it will help them be able to stay strong. On this day let it be known that we as a human race can and will be as persistent and consistent as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. as we work towards equal opportunity and better quality for everyone. Today we celebrate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., a civil rights activists and a community leader. The Celebration for The Life and Legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Annual MLK South Street Jazz and Blues Cookout is a celebration of this great leader. On Saturday January 21, 2023 come and celebrate with us while we host the 10th Annual MLK South Street Jazz and Blues Cookout at The Breakfast Corner 626 W. Gore Street Orlando Florida 32805.
