Participants at the Tuesday Morning Breakfast Forum today took turns coming to front to speak about Malachi Greene, a longtime Forum participant, political activist, former Charlotte City Council member and nurturer of many good things in Charlotte.

Ken Koontz reports: “The Malachi Memorial Table at The Office has been set up. Bojangles Manager Albert Horne was a big Malachi fan who says, ‘Malachi put life in this place and drew lots of people who became great, loyal customers. I wanted to do something special for customers to remember him and for us to honor him.’ ”
