DeKalb high school bands to march on MLK Day

DeKalb County high school bands will march in the DeKalb NAACP's 10th Annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Parade and Peace Rally Jan. 16.

The bands from five high schools -- Cedar Grove, Clarkston, Martin Luther King, Jr., McNair and Stone Mountain -- will be allowed to march despite allegations of inappropriate activity in school bands. Last month, Superintendent Cheryl Atkinson ordered nearly all marching band activities ceased pending the outcome of the investigation.

The parade in Stone Mountain starts at 12:30 p.m. at 922 Main St. and ends at 5265 Mimosa Dr.
