Dr. King Remembered Today

Martin Luther King is being remembered across the country today as community leaders urge people to continue King's message of "equality."

Here in Amarillo, people gathered at the Black Historical Cultural Center for Dr. King's Unity Day.
   

Mayor Debra McCartt and others in the community spoke about the civil rights leader, prayed and ate some sweets to celebrate Dr. King's birthday.

Also one local school has decided that Martin Luther King day will no longer be a school holiday. 

NewsChannel 10's Blaire Arvin will tell you why, and what the school is doing instead, tonight at Five, Six and Ten.
