Hundreds Participate In Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration

In honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, hundreds of Abilene citizens marched on the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Bridge. Young and old people of every race and gender marched and sang together to celebrate civil rights. Nelson Wilson, a Vietnam Veteran and longtime Abilene resident, participated in the first march in 1980. He said each year the march has continued to grow.
