City Council President Billy Young, who’s also a member of the Black Belt Alphas, said he’s excited about the fraternity hosting the MLK parade.

Meleah Montgomery of Auburn University announced via ZOOM Conference that 66 students will volunteer and help cleanup the city of Selma on Monday, January 17, which is the MLK holiday.
