Martin Luther King Walk

Many in the Wiregrass spent the weekend celebrating the Martin Luther King, Junior holiday in Headland in a walk that was open to the public.

The walkded kicked off with a prayer and then the group marched proudly around the square in remembrance of King's contributions to the civil rights movement.

Participants said it was a good way to bring people together.

Deborah Reaves organized the walk and said “Martin Luther King was about us all coming together as one so we can all love each other, our children can grow together and not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.”

James Williams, a participant in the walk, says “I hope this march brings our community together; blacks, whites and everyone. That’s my ultimate goal that it brings unity to our community."

Enterprise also hosted a celebration honoring the life and legacy of King by holding a reinactment of his non-violent walk.
