The Black History Club Talent Show had another successful year with the proceeds from the three shows providing enough funds for the group’s trip to Atlanta to learn about and visit sites associated with noted civil rights leader, and Nobel Prize Winner, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.The group will visit the Ebenezer Baptist Church where King preached, and also stop by his boyhood home on Auburn Street and the King Center. In 1964 at the age of 35 King was the youngest man to have received the Nobel Peace Prize.
