Leadership Montgomery is celebrating its 40th year of connecting leaders to effect change and is honoring its founding by collaborating with the Montgomery Historical Preservation Commission to showcase the “Todd Road Incident” short film created by Leadership Montgomery Class XXVII, Project Team #7. 

The organization shared a brief history of their founding and the event represented in the film stating, “In 1983, a horrific incident in Montgomery, Alabama sent shock waves throughout the country. According to reports, it involved white undercover Montgomery police officers barging into a home with black out-of-town visitors and violence ensuing. There were shootings, stabbings, and beatings. It became known as the ‘Todd Road Incident.’ One year later, in efforts to bring peace and hope out of this devastating incident, a group of four men from different races and backgrounds came together to form Leadership Montgomery. The non-profit organization was established to unite diverse community leaders, foster communication, embrace change, harness diversity, and tackle pressing community issues.”

Leadership Montgomery is inviting the public to attend the hour-long meeting led by Dr. Richard Bailey, Chair of the Historic Preservation Commission, and “embark on a journey toward more profound understanding and common ground with meaningful discussion afterwards. Don’t miss out on this captivating opportunity to be part of an engaging and enlightening event with panelists, George Goodwyn, Sr., Founder; Leadership Montgomery; Cheryl Johnson, President, Leadership Montgomery; and Dr. Michael Sibley, Legacy Class XXVII, Project Team #7 Member.”

For more information, please contact Leadership Montgomery President Cheryl Johnson at (334) 262-2261.

The film will be shown on Wednesday, May 14, 2024, 5:30- 6:30 p.m. at Montgomery’s City Hall Auditorium at 103 North Perry Street.
