2nd Annual Unity Day Celebration

Saturday was all about diversity, harmony and community at MLK Jr. park in Amarillo.  The park was the scene where hundreds joined to celebrate the diverse culture of the panhandle.

There was plenty of prayer, food and music to entertain people from all over the city.

Prenis Williams with the NAACP says, "They can come out and visit in fellowship and talk with one another.  It will hopefully be a long success story for the community of Amarillo."

This was the 2nd Annual Unity Day in Amarillo.  The local chapter of the NAACP planned it last year to divert attention from a KKK rally that took place at city hall on August 5, 2006.
