A Dublin Connection
On April 17, 1944, the Colored Elks Clubs of Georgia held their state convention at First African Baptist Church in Dublin and sponsored an essay contest. A 14-year-old student at Booker T. Washington High School in Atlanta delivered a speech entitled "The Negro and the Constitution." Little did the audience realize they were witnessing the first public speech by Dr. Martin L. King, Jr., and the start of the Civil Rights Movement.
