Hundreds march for MLK's message

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Decades ago, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. inspired millions with his life and words. His legacy lives on today.

Hundreds of people gathered at the County City Building in downtown South Bend on Monday, including new mayor Pete Buttigieg.

There people sang, danced, and listened to the "I Have a Dream” speech. People  then lined up and marched three blocks to the Century Center to celebrate Dr. King's message of equality.

Many kids in the crowd made and carried signs reading “Peace on Earth” and “Let Freedom Ring”.

Even the kids recognized that it was great to bring the community together.
"It’s nice because we're all coming together as one, and we're marching for fun,” said Isabella Vaz.
Many said they hope the community can come together more often to celebrate even when it’s not a holiday.
