The Sarah Keys Evans Plaza was opened today with a ceremony at Martin Luther King Jr. Park at the intersection of Wyche Street and Virginia Avenue.

Resolutions from the city and county were read by Mayor Emery Doughtie and board of commissioners Chair Vernon Bryant.

United States Congressman G.K. Butterfield read a resolution which has been entered into the Congressional Record honoring Keys-Evans.

(A full story on the event will appear Monday)

Keys-Evans said via Zoom, “This is a glorious day for me. This dedication and celebration makes me very, very happy. I believe we all have a kinship. I wish I could have been there in person but from what I’ve heard it is marvelous and I am very, very happy and very proud of everyone.”

While she said she probably couldn’t remember the names of all who spoke today, she said, “I am very happy I’m being honored there today.”
