Kids Tell Us What MLK Day Means To Them - And How Far We Have to Go
GAINESVILLE - The celebration continued in North Central Florida as hundreds of people marched in downtown Gainesville to commemorate the march Dr. King made on Washington 50 years ago.
Educating the next generation was the theme, as high school students took the stage to give their version of inequality...and what equality should look like.
Raven Delk was the winner of the "Keeper of the Dream" scholarship and says her family instilled in her the importance of community involvement at a young age.
Raven Delk, scholarship winner: "people tell you that you can't do it because no one else's done it before but don't let that stop you because in in the civil rights movement they were the first people to really make that change, and they put their lives at stake."
North Central Florida is also celebrating a milestone - The Martin Luther King, Jr. Commission of Florida - founded in Gainesville - is celebrating its 30th year.
