The march will begin at 11 a.m. and will follow a route around the courthouse square and several blocks to Bridgeforth Middle School Cafeteria.

The traditional Evening Celebration will be held at 6 pm at Matthew's House of Praise on 128 Chestnut Street in Pulaski with Jeremiah Gardner as special speaker.
