Only One Albany

Only One Albany Restoring passion and pride in Albany, GA. The city of Albany has a lot to offer. After all, where else can you find such warm, friendly people; surprisingly diverse corporate citizens, including a military base and the youthful energy of 16,000 college students?

Beyond its people, Albany is blessed with great weather and geographic proximity to the Gulf Coast and interiors of Georgia, Florida and Alabama; not to mention being home to family-friendly attractions, a growing number of trendy shops and eateries, and the list goes on. Many of its residents however have forgotten, or simply taken for granted all of these things that make the city so cool and beautiful. They merely need to be reminded just how much there is to love. The passion for and pride in their hometown, as well as each other, simply need to be restored. Because if they really stopped and took another look, it would be clear that...

There's Only One Albany.

BLACK HISTORY = ALBANY HISTORY: One way to keep history alive is to keep on making it. That's what King Randall is doing through his youth mentorship program, targeted at at-risk young black men in the Albany community. The "X" for Boys is "a man-making machine," teaching young men ages 11-17 not only basic life skills such as how to change oil and tires on a car, but also personal development skills such as anger management and accountability, which Randall says is a core quality of his program with the boys learning to keep not only themselves accountable, but their friends as well. The ultimate vision for "The X" is to develop a fully-accredited life prepratory boarding school for young men in the Albany area looking to take their potential to the next level.

BLACK HISTORY = ALBANY HISTORY: There can be no discussion on black history in Albany without the inclusion of Martin Luther King, who came to the city in 1961 to jump start what is famously known as “The Albany Movement,” where he helped rally the region to the cause of civil rights. Dr. King’s visit was so highly anticipated, it drew more attendants than could fit in a single space, which led him to run back and forth between Old Mt. Zion Baptist and Shiloh Baptist Churches several times over, delivering the same speech, in order to address each packed-out congregation. During the subsequent Albany March, MLK was jailed in Albany, alongside many other activists from the area. Today, the legend of MLK and the Albany Movement lives on through the Albany Civil Rights Institute, located in @downtownalbanygeorgia, adjacent to the two churches where MLK delivered his famous, mobilizing speeches to Albany activists. #OnlyOneAlbany #AlbanyGA #TheGoodLifeCity #TheGLC #ILoveABY #BlackHistoryMonth #BlackHistoryIsAlbanyHistory

BLACK HISTORY = ALBANY HISTORY: Alice Coachman turned black to gold in 1948, making history as the first black woman to win an Olympic gold medal. Born in Albany in 1923, Alice was a gifted athlete, but often unable to secure training opportunities due to segregation laws. Rather than abandon her talent, Alice got creative. She would train by running barefoot through fields or on dirt roads, and use old equipment to practice her high jump, the event for which she was awarded a gold medal at the 1948 Olympic games in London. Following her Olympic appearance, she returned to Albany where she graduated from Albany State University, and is remembered by the community through her namesake institution, Alice Coachman Elementary School. #OnlyOneAlbany #AlbanyGA #TheGoodLifeCity #TheGLC #ILoveABY #BlackHistoryIsAlbanyHistroy #BlackHistoryMonth

BLACK HISTORY = ALBANY HISTORY: Ray Charles Robinson was born in Albany, Georgia on September 23, 1930. With a unique talent for blending musical styles of R&B, jazz, blues, gospel and country, the famously blind "Father of Soul" released the hit single "Georgia on My Mind" in 1960, which ultimately became Georgia's official state song in 1976, and still rings out today from downtown Albany's Ray Charles Plaza, which commemorates the city's most celebrated son. #OnlyOneAlbany #AlbanyGA #TheGoodLifeCity #TheGLC #ILoveABY #BlackHistoryMonth #BlackHistoryIsAlbanyHistory
