Kentuckians Remember Life And Work Of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Cities all across Kentucky commemorated the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Junior Monday with programs, marches, and other events.

Events started late Sunday night on the UK campus. Participants marched to the student center and gathered for musical performances and presentations to remember the life of Dr. King at midnight. A breakfast then followed.

In Lexington, many attended the annual Unity Breakfast at Heritage Hall.

That was followed by a march that started and ended at Heritage Hall, and a commemorative program, set to the theme of "Somebody's Calling My Name."

Richmond also held a march and service to honor King.

    MLK had a dream...It has been fulfilled. We have an African American running for president! I know there are still some narrow minded people out there but 90 % of the people are on the same page. This country has came a long way.I myself feel that all people are the same.Humans! If everyone (black,white,mexican,chinese,you get the idea)would act equal it would be a better place and MLK"s dream would be more than fulfilled.Equal is just that...NO MORE NO LESS!
