Tinsley Receives MLK Award

Long-time community activist Grace Tinsley was honored with the annual Community Service Award presented by the Martin Luther King Jr. Community Celebration and Worship Service last night. The three-hour event at the packed Performing Arts Center featured music, prayer, and even a theatrical performance, all in the name of Martin Luther King Jr. Tinsley was the first black woman on the school board, a CHS nurse, advocate of the creation of the public defender’s office, and even registered black voters out of her home in the 1963.
