Longview Residents Honor MLK

More than 75 people showed up in Longview Monday for a march, honoring Dr. Martin Luther King.

Led by local ministers with the Interdenominational Ministerial Alliance and community leaders, the group took off from the "Broughton Recreation Center" headed towards "Mount Olive Baptist Church".

The group was a mixture of all ages and races. Those who took part in the march, say celebrating the birthday of Dr. King is still very important.

Following the march, the group held a memorial to honor Dr. King's life. This was the 11th year the event has been held in Longview.
