Honoring Martin Luther King Junior

In order to honor a civil rights leader, one community here in the east took to the streets.

Songs of freedom rang out on top of College Hill as singers harmonized the start of unity.

On Monday night over one hundred students of East Carolina gathered to hold a candlelight vigil to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Junior, and his civil rights achievements.

Students marched step-by-step from College Hill to the Mendenhall Student Center to raise awareness for equality.

One of the messages of unity Monday night was to urge students to wear red on Tuesday for the victims of Haiti.

A fundraiser will take place from 10 to 3 PM on campus to help aid the people of Haiti devastated by the earthquake.
