Alabama County Celebrates Official Obama Holiday

imagesMarion Alabama has official proclaimed Monday a holiday celebrating Barack Obama, Americas first black president. Perry County is sparsely populated, with a little over 11,000 residents, mostly black, and an unemployment rate of more than 18 per cent.

The Obama holiday was proposed by Commissioner Albert Turner Jr., whose father was one of the marchers beaten on the Edmund Pettus Bridge in the 1965 “Bloody Sunday” voting rights march in Selma. “It’s not that we’re celebrating Obama. We’re celebrating America living up to it’s creed that all men are created equal,” Turner said.

Employees, as well as city workers in Marion and Uniontown, will get a paid holiday Monday as government offices close, culminating a series of events including an old-fashioned civil rights rally and march, a golf tournament, a weekend carnival and a parade. Perry County courthouse will post a sign that reads, “Closed for the Obama Holiday.”
