Carolyn Maull Mckinstry is the author of “While the World Watched” and survivor of two of the 60 unsolved bombings in Birmingham, Alabama during the time of segregation.
Monday, January 20, 2014, Rev. McKinstry was the keynote speaker for the annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Birthday Celebration sponsored by Fayette County NAACP Branch & Fayette County Board of Education in Fayetteville, GA.
Fayette County NAACP Branch President John E. Jones stated what he “really loves about this county, this community, is that no matter what is said or done, love still prevails.” There may be differences but we “work through them” continued Jones.
McKinstry referenced several times in her speech that she also believes the world can change but it “must begin with the practice of love.” She ended by stating that “we must learn to work together and to share with each other… we must treat all mankind with respect.”
