If famed civil rights leader, Dr. Martin Luther King jr. was alive today, he would be proud to know his trials and tribulations to bring about equality for all Americans were not done in vain.
Hundreds of people filled the pews at Durrett Avenue Baptist church this morning in Hopkinsville to honor King, a man who changed a nation through peaceful protests.
Today’s message was delivered by reverend Darvin Adams of Hopkinsville, who spoke highly of the late civil rights leader.
According to Adams, Martin Luther King jr. was a modern day Moses, whose life’s mission was to unite the nation.
Martin Luther King jr. was fatally shot in Memphis in 1968, just when the civil rights movement was at its peak and officials at today’s ceremony say its important to remember the past and to keep his dream alive.
