Hundreds march in downtown Fresno to honor Martin Luther King Jr

Minneapolis, St. Paul events to celebrate legacy of Martin Luther King Jr.

Martin Luther King Jr. carried the day he was assassinated and his handwritten, private papers are showcased in a new exhibit at the National Center for Civil and Human Rights in downtown Atlanta.

Martin Luther King Jr's youngest child, Reverend Bernice King, was also critical of Mr Trump during an address at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta.

Organizers say it highlights how far we've come since the death of Dr. King and how far we still have to go.

"I don't think we're quite at that stage where everyone is equal and having the same opportunities and being able to share their opinions without being afraid", said Geva Ozeri, who marched alongside his friends with United Synagogue Youth.

"Free at last, free at last, thank God Almighty we are free at last".

He gave a speech titled "future of integration" in front of three thousand people in the Ban Johnson Field House.

"It's important that we continue to recognize the fight that took place before us", Kennedy said. "I want to thank you for this day, Lord, thank you for this time".

University staff say Dr. King's work resonates closely with the message of the sisters of Providence and the school's Catholic identity.

Dr. King would've been 89 this year and it's keeping his memory alive is what drives some residents to be here every year.

"I think the dream got out of wack and we have to reclaim that dream", said Ava Nada.

Martin Luther King often spoke of the need for unconditional love.

"Coming together as one, as Dr. King saw us, black, white, Jews and Gentiles, men and women all coming together for a collection of music, celebration and love", said Mark Gibson. Day serves as an annual call to examine the state of things across the nation. "When there are goals that we come together and achieve those goals".

Monday would have been Dr. King's 89th birthday.
