      People who visited the Albany Civil Rights Institute this weekend had the privilege of listening to the "Freedom Singers" perform.

      Originally formed in 1962 in the City of Albany, the freedom singer preformed at civil rights events both nationally and internationally. They even performed at Martin Luther King's I have a dream Speech.

      A tour guide to the institution, Trenton Andrews said, "This is a benevolent way of involving the community as far as a historical aspect of what occurred in the 1960's as well as getting the community involved with it now."

      The freedom singers perform at the Civil Rights Institute the second Saturday of every month at 1 o'clock.
