More than 30,000 people gathered in Denver on Jan. 19th for the annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day celebrations. We hear two reports featuring the voices of students who  participated in the marade.

Dave Ashton and Diana Aqra spoke to many students who were members of sororities and fraternities who say they are continuing the legacy of Dr. King who was a member of the Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity.

 

 

Irene Rodriguez spoke to many young people participating in Monday’s marade who say they are concerned about police brutality, racism and ongoing inequality in society.
