Sevier Residents Honor King With March, Rally

Sevierville, Sevier County (WVLT) - People in Sevier County also took time today to remember Dr. Martin Luther King with a march and rally.

A good showing Monday morning in Downtown Sevierville, for the county's annual march, only the second one ever there.

Some participants feel it's not only good to remember what Dr. King did for civil rights but also keep his dream alive for our children and grandchildren.

"A lot of them are abreast with what's happening. The older people are explaining to them what Martin Luther King went through in those days and it's good to represent Dr. Martin Luther King," says Larry McDermott.

The events ended with a rally and program outside the courthouse.
