FSU Helps Students Honor Civil Rights Hero

A man who gave his life for the cause of racial equality is honored in Tallahassee.

Celebrations for the Martin Luther King holiday kicked off Wednesday morning with a march.

This was a chance for FSU students to reach back to younger students and help them understand the dream.

The march started at about 10:30 in front of the immigration statue on campus.

About 100 high school students from Leon, Wakulla and Gadsden counties marched to FSU's administration building.

Organizers for the event are hoping as the students march, they let their minds take a stroll as well, back to a time when students like them took part in similar demonstrations that changed the course of history.

In addition to the march, the high school students also participated in a forum on race relations Wednesday morning.
