ATLANTA (August 29, 2017) | A statue commemorating the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was unveiled on the state Capitol grounds on Monday, August 28, 2017. Sen. Fran Millar (R – Atlanta) was present at the ceremony as a member of the Capitol Arts Standards Commission.
“I am sorry I couldn’t be at the unveiling of the statue of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. at the State Capitol yesterday. Dr. King was a man of deep religious faith who allowed his beliefs to inspire a new generation of leaders in every aspect of his life. Those religious convictions allowed him to lead a nonviolent movement committed to ending racial injustice in America. May we always celebrate those who act because their faith compels them to do so.”
