His Dream Lives On!
My name is Curshevia Robinson, Youth Organizer at Nollie Jenkins Family Center ( NJFC), and 7th grade student at S.V.Marshall Elementary School. On January 18, 2016 my organization and I attended the Martin Luther King Jr. parade. We attend this event every year. While in preparation we gathered posters and chants. The Martin Luther King Jr. parade was special because people were marching even though it was cold. Over thirty people joined together for this march! The event was located in the city of Picken,Ms. Throughout the march we chanted chants that both uplifted and demonstrated the living dream of Martin Luther King Jr. We marched to chants such as "no justice, no peace, no racist police", "books not bars", and "I can't hear my brothers' saying I can't breathe. After the parade we attended a program about Martin Luther King Jr. that tells how his dream still lives. In conclusion I was proud to be apart of such an inspirational event that honored the life and legacy of Martin Luther King Jr..
