Martin Luther King Day Celebration

January 19th, 2009 by flanews

State Lawmakers, preachers, and students marched to the state capitol to celebrate the birthday of Martin Luther King.

The group of more than a hundred carried signs and sang songs in remembrance of the fallen civil rights leaders.
Students say without Martin Luther King, Barrack Obama would have never been elected.

He paved the way for President-Elect Obama to do the things that he has done. Hes paved the way for people like me to do the things I would have done, said FAMU Student Nathanial Holston.

Many of the participants in the march spent the rest of the day volunteering at churches and homeless shelters.
