MLK Day march in Moss Point

MOSS POINT, MS (WLOX) - More than 100 people walked the streets of downtown Moss Point on Monday to honor Dr. Martin Luther King's life and legacy. Southern Christian Leadership Conference members sponsored the march and have been walking for equality and justice in the city since the 1970s.

The Moss Point parade was one of several held across south Mississippi.  You'll see MLK celebrations in Moss Point, Picayune and Biloxi, plus the annual Battle of the Bands inside the Mississippi Coast Coliseum throughout the day and night on WLOX News.
