This April will mark half a century since the death of civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr. In keeping with a decades old observance, hundreds Monday morning marched through the center of downtown Lexington to honor King’s legacy.
As always on the third Monday in January, people representing various organizations marched together preparing for what some say is a pivotal year.
“The next year in 2018 is really critical. 2017 seemed like a very long year, thanks to our president,” said Kentucky Dream Coalition Organizer Milton-Meza Delossantos.
