Gladewater Martin Luther King Jr. Day march

Folks of all ages in Gladewater hit the streets early this morning.

This year's slogan for the annual MLK march - "Keeping the Dream Alive." Marchers say they hope that King's dream and Obama's inauguration will inspire the youth in East Texas and across the country.

"This march is not just a black thing: it's for everybody because we're all having trouble with our children so it's basically aimed at us trying to find a way to reach our youth because our youth is our future," said Dr. Marcellus Price the MLK March Organizer.

New Beginnings Faith Ministry and New Home Baptist Church both organized the walk. About 100 marchers came out for the rally.
