HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) - Almost 1,300 people gathered at the Von Braun Center Monday morning for the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Unity Breakfast.
It was the 26th annual event put on by Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Incorporated. Trial lawyer and keynote speaker Mark Geragos said the event is a springboard for discussion about Dr. King's dream.
"Martin Luther King's message lives on, vibrates, and resonates today, but by no means is it accomplished. It isn't just a message to people of color, it's a message to everybody about social justice," said Geragos.
The breakfast featured musical performances and “Unity Awards.” Ticket proceeds will benefit the fraternity's educational programs for at-risk youth.
