Locals March to Honor Dr. King

The weather was cool for those taking part in a march to honor the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on Sunday night.

Dozens gathered at the intersection of 16th St. and 30th Ave. for the annual march that honors the civil rights leader. It also helps to celebrate his life and fulfill the dream he had of everyone coming together. Those that Newscenter 11 talked to told us that while a lot of progress has been made, there's still more that can be done to honor Dr. King.

"If he was here today, I believe he would be happy about some of the accomplishments as we have made," Rev. Stevie Mosley said. "At the same time, I think he would be a little disappointed at some of the things we are doing in our community

"I think he would be pleased to see that we have continued to be educated and that we have continued to strive for getting along without each other without resorting to violence," Melba Clark said.

The march concluded at First Union Missionary Baptist Church where a special memorial service was held for Dr. King.
