We stroll down memory lane with Bruce and Dr. King’s older sister Dr. Christine King Farris at The Martin Luther King Jr. Center, Atlanta’s official memorial to a world changing leader. Then it’s off to Athens with Chef Marvin Woods for a meal at Farm 255, a unique restaurant that delivers a seasonal menu from their own farms. Next we join David where Bald Eagles soar and Giant anacondas slither at Georgia Southern University’s Center for Wildlife Education. It’s time to play ball with Michelle and the Rome Braves and connect with a few up and coming Major Leaguers.
All that and more on the next… Georgia Traveler!

Established in 1968 by Coretta Scott King, The King Center is the official, living memorial dedicated to advancing the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. We take a tour with Host Bruce Burkhardt and Dr. King’s older sister Dr. Christine King Farris to learn about his remarkable life and hear her stories about Dr. King as a child.
Chef Marvin Woods takes us to Farm255. A place that serves up the fruit of Georgia’s red earth, this Athens establishment gives its guests a true taste of the state. Farm 255’s menu is derived from what they grow at their own farms…making it a farm and table restaurant. It’s one of the first restaurants in the country to adopt this approach.

Its Bald Eagles soaring…and Giant anacondas slithering. We’re off with David to Georgia Southern’s Center for Wildlife Education. The Center exists to support Georgia Southern University in its environmental education programs, as well as to provide wildlife encounters for the school children and citizens of this region.
We take a trip to State Mutual Stadium in Rome, Georgia to meet some of Georgia's own upcoming stars for the Class- A Atlanta Braves affiliate. While there we chat it up and play a little ball with a rather familiar opponent.
