Civil Rights Leader Remembers Dr. King at King Day Celebration

Civil Rights Leader Remembers Dr. King at King Day Celebration

About 100 people gathered Sunday evening to celebrate the contributions of Martin Luther King Jr., and to discuss how the ideals he advocated for continue to be relevant in the Topeka community and beyond. "His monumental struggle for civil rights earned these places in his life, faith, and death, the same honor as Mount Vernon and that famous, humble log cabin in IL".

"He actually spent quite a bit of his time here over the summers, he worked actually in the tobacco fields up in northern CT".

Hundreds saw performances from different schools across the Southern Oregon and even a speech from Dr. Geneva Craig who fought for civil rights alongside Dr. King.

"I love to seeing it because we all are brothers and sisters and going into Martin Luther King - that is what he wanted - he didn't want us separate, he wanted all of us together", said Danielle Mathis, who attended the event with her 3-year-old son.

"It is probably the most fantastic recognition I've ever had that's associated with adding value to people", he said.

During that event, the political group Freedom Inc. will receive the Rev. Dr. Nelson "Fuzzy" Thompson Leadership Award.

"The dream does live, it lives in you it lives in me it lives in everyone that's watching, and so I think that it's important that people have a better understanding of what dr king really meant", said Pettie.

"Today, we celebrate and remember his life".
