Free Gospel Concert Celebrates the Power of Two
Macon Bibb Citizen Advocacy held a free gospel concert on September 28, 2019 to celebrate the Power of Two people standing together as one. Attended by approximately 300 people, this free event was open to the public and featured mass choirs from Lizzie Chapel, Union, Mount Vernon and Center Hill Baptist Churches as well as the gospel group Soul’s Desire. “This is some of the best gospel performances I’ve seen,” said Herbert Dennard, former owner of The Georgia Informer newspaper and host of The Herbert Dennard Show. Dennard emcees the event each year and is a friend and supporter of Citizen Advocacy as an advocate for many years.
Macon Bibb Citizen Advocacy has been creating relationships between people with developmental disabilities (who are isolated and excluded from the community) and caring citizens of Macon for 41 years.
These relationships often last for decades and provide protection and advocacy for those without a voice, and in addition, alleviate the loneliness that so often accompanies exclusion from community life.
