Laramie, WY – Speakers at a Cheyenne celebration of the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. say his legacy still has much to offer the country as it faces challenges domestically and overseas.
Monday's march up Capitol Avenue marked the 28th year of the event in King's honor in Cheyenne.
Former Wyoming legislator Liz Byrd told the crowd she worked for years before getting a bill passed in 1990 marking recognition in Wyoming of the King holiday.
Byrd said the world is watching how well the United States will respond to its current challenges. She says the country needs to stick to his principles of fairness and justice.
