Ozark gathers to celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day

OZARK, Ala. (WTVY) — For the people in Ozark, Martin Luther King Jr. Day is no ordinary day.

Dr. King was a civil rights leader calling for justice and equality for all his people. People in Ozark turned out Monday celebrating King's legacy.

He motivated others to push through all obstacles and never let the color of skin limit you.

One student tells us that “because of him I was able to go to a magnet school and I never thought I would be able to."

While many were off work, others chose to come out and march for a greater cause.

They marched along Andrews Street to First Missionary Baptist Church where they discussed what King went through to get us to where we are.

The main message was action without works is dead so the journey continues.
