Detroit Mayor and FAMU graduate Kwame Kilpatrick made a stop in Tallahassee.
Kilpatrick spoke to a crowd at FAMU as part of the city's 50th anniversary commemoration of the Tallahassee bus boycott.
Kilpatrick, who said he spent a lot of time with civil rights icon Rosa Parks as a child, said students today can learn a lot from those who stood for justice 50 years ago.
"There is always a new battle. There will always be a fight. Our children's children will have to stand up and fight for themselves because power will yield nothing unless there is a force for it to be reckoned with," said Kilpatrick.
During Wednesday's ceremony several law enforcement officers passed out bread and water as they did 50 years ago.
