NAACP holds freedom march in Detroit

DETROIT — People in Detroit participated in a freedom march to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s landmark speech. 

Fifty years ago, Detroit played host to one of the most iconic speeches in American civil rights history. During the fourth weekend in June, dreamers of all ages got together to honor those who walked the original path to freedom.

"The dream is still here. It's still thriving. It's still alive in Detroit," said attendee Angela Thompson Edwards. "We're not running away from Detroit. We're here to stay, and the dream is alive and well here."

Many in attendance said they were there to simply give back what Martin Luther King Jr. gave to them.
