Dozens gathered at Florida A&M University to remember the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Students and community members sang hymns and heard excerpts from King's famous "I Have a Dream" speech.
FAMU student body president Phillip Agnew served as keynote speaker. He says given recent events including the beating death of Martin Lee Anderson, Dr. King's dream is not yet a reality.
"We've definitely taken some hits to civil rights in the last few years. I do think all hope is not lost, and it is up to us to harness the power and faith he had in us when he left this earth in order to move forward," said Agnew.
The MLK holiday, signed into law by President Ronald Reagan, will be observed on Monday.
