March to the Capitol

January 18th, 2010 by flanews

Young and old made the march to the state Capitol this morning to honor Martin Luther King.

People sang and carried signs honoring the civil rights leader. The march was peaceful, but Shirley-Johnson-Delgado can remember a time when demonstrators were beat for standing up for equal rights. Shirley was living in Montgomery, Alabama in the 1960ís. She says itís important to teach kids about Dr. Kingís courage.

ďThatís what young people need to know that youíre not just guaranteed something, you have to work for it or someone else has to work for it for you,” said Shirley.

Speakers at todayís rally applauded the progress made in the civil rights struggle but say more needs to be done to assure equality for all Americans.
