The Conyers-Rockdale Chamber of Commerce and the Rockdale Branch of the NAACP co-hosted a breakfast on Monday, January 16, commemorating the birth of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and celebrating the life and achievements of the influential American civil rights leader. The event was held at the Longhorn Steakhouse located on Iris Drive near Interstate 20 and West Avenue. The keynote speaker for the event was the Rev. Layne Fields, pastor of Old Pleasant Hill Baptist Church. Proceeds from the eighth-annual event will be donated to United Way in Rockdale to benefit programs addressing homelessness in the community.
