SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -
Stories, speeches, and songs were all used in Sioux City Monday night to honor Dr. King.
"His was a dream that looked at the past, spoke to the present, yet hoped for the future," said Rev. Brown, Mt. Zion Missionary Baptist Church.
The event put on by the Sioux City NAACP and Mount Zion Missionary Baptist Church focused on Martin Luther King's dream as seen through the eyes of people today.
The speakers included high school students, community leaders with different cultural backgrounds, and even a reading of Dr. King's famous "Mountain Top" speech.
The common message here, how much the slain civil rights leader's actions impact all of us today, and the work that still needs to be done in this community and nationally.
"They spoke on challenges, situations, and opportunities that they had. And I just think it's so important that we as a community realize that the movement still lives on," said Treyla Lee-Chavis, NAACP Member.
And as part of the event, a community celebration choir.
