Pursuing Liberty in the Face of ...

Pursuing Liberty in the Face of Injustice is the theme for the third annual event, said Andre Knight, president of the Rocky Mount chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People.

"The last year has been pivotal in many areas impacting civil rights across the country and right here in our own backyard," Knight said. "The NAACP recognizes that all of those issues have an underlying thread that is tied together by race."
Recent racial hurdles and incidents in the Twin Counties have settled in the area of education, Knight said.
"A KKK-inspired incident at Nash Central High School that went viral throughout the country through social media, the closing of O. R. Pope Elementary School, the forced resignation of the Nash-Rocky Mount superintendent and impending threats from members of the Nash County commissioners to de-merge our award-winning Nash-Rocky Mount Public Schools system," Knight said. "This year's awardees have done much to promote progress and excellence in education in the Twin Counties in the face of adversity."
The annual awards event gives the community the opportunity to celebrate local heroes and to encourage others to be courageous in their daily walk while highlighting the great gains everyday people make, Knight said.
"We have asked our State Conference President, Rev. Dr. William Barber, to speak to us at the Image Awards and update us about North Carolina's challenges and what we can do to ensure that the promise of liberty and justice is truly for all of us," Knight said.
The annual Image Awards - which draws about 300 people each year to the Imperial Centre - is an opportunity to celebrate local heroes and let them know they are appreciated for what they do on a daily basis, Knight said.

The government needs to disband this National Association of Advancment of Criminal People ! And I have always had respect and voted for Sheriff Knight but to know now that he is asscoiated with the NAACP I have no more repsect for him and will never vote for him again. I find this a conflict of interest to his job and believe the Attorney General should investigate it !

The Rev. William Barber, president of the state chapter of the NAACP, will speak at the event, which is focused on the theme of the "Fierce Urgency of Now," taken from a speech King made in 1962 in Rocky Mount, said Andre Knight, president of the Rocky Mount branch of the NAACP.

"The branch leadership decided that we needed to provide extra encouragement to our community to participate in and support efforts to move our society forward," he said.
