BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - April 4, 2013 will mark the 45th anniversary of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Erie County Legislator Betty Jean Grant and "We Are Women Warriors", a community and family empowerment group, hosted a discussion about Dr. King's death and its impact on the civil rights movement Wednesday night. Organizers hope his message will continue to resonate with young people.
Grant said, "What we're trying to do is focus on what he did while he was here, but at the same time let our youth know that they have an obligation to fulfill his dream because he sacrificed so much for them to have that opportunity."
Educator and author Eva Doyle presented a film on Dr. King's life and lead the discussion.
