legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The Jackson County Southern
Christian Leadership Conference heads up the celebration every

his dream, so we see the reality of it today," Jackson County Supervisor
Melton Harris said. "I think that is a blessing across our country
that we are getting away from some of the problems that have kept some
of us down, and we are telling the youth everything is possible."
A message of hope these marches promise to promote as they move forward, uplifting each other.
