Fulton NAACP observes black history with ‘spirit of togetherness’

Photo detail

Kylie Harrison, 10, of Fulton reads from a script as she gives a lesson on the Martin Luther King Jr. flag to an audience attending the Fulton NAACP event Sunday that commemorated the life of the civil rights leader and Black History Month. Harrison said King’s face is one of “contemplative regret” and the black circle symbolizes African Americans’ “never-ending struggle” for freedom and justice. The five-colored stripes give representation to the “whole human race.” Harrison said her favorite part of the flag are the 22 stars, which stand for each time King went to jail during the fight for equal rights in the 1960s.
