Marchers remember MLK as they walk in St. Augustine

ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. -- Approximately 150 people marched through the streets of St. Augustine Monday, honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Two groups started in separate locations in the city, walking toward King Street.

The groups met at the plaza.

They marched on streets where civil rights demonstrators marched in the 1960s. 

Marchers had different reasons for taking to the streets.

Octavia Singleton said, "There's a lot of history behind this walk in St. Augustine and so I just thought it was something I'd love to be a part of."

John Monroe, the Student Body President at Flagler College said, "I'm marching to remember Martin Luther King, Jr. who made it possible for me to come to St. Augustine and attend Flagler College."

While marching, Danielle Washington explained, "I couldn't be there when Dr. King marched and did what he did for my people, but I can come out today."

Amy Camp finished marching and sat with her son in the plaza. She said, "I marched today because Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  is one of my heros, and I wanted my son, William, who is a third grader at R.B. Hunt Elementary to experience a little bit of the power of King's dream."
