Hundreds Honor Dr. King's Legacy With Commemorative March
It's the stuff dreams are made of...
If you dreamed what Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. dreamed.
Residents of North Central Florida joined together on the streets of Gainesville to pay their respects to the legacy of a man who gave his life for unity and equality among people.
Hundreds took part in the commemorative march.
They represented every wallk of life: from University of Florida fraternities to Hare Krishnas of Gainesville to Veterans For Peace.
Some sang. Some chanted. Some prayed quietly as they walked. Many held hands.
The march stretched from the Downtown plaza to the Martin Luther King Jr. Center in East Gainesville.
The March was followed by a gospel program at the center.
