AMARILLO, TX (KFDA) - The Amarillo chapter of the NAACP is celebrating the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. through its annual march.
“The community response is always great, we usually have 150 people in the march itself and maybe more at the courthouse for the program,” said NAACP member Bill Glover.
The march will begin at 11:30 a.m. at Martin Luther King Jr. Park and end at the Potter County Courthouse.
“Dr. King fought and then died for equality and justice for all of us,” said Glover. “That is something we need to take as an inspiration and not just a piece of history.”
At Noon, there will be a short program at the courthouse.
Reverend Nell Newton and other speakers will give speeches at the event.
“This isn’t just about one particular group, this is about inclusion for everyone,” said Glover.
