As the nation pauses to remember civil rights leader, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on the national holiday in his honor, many Detroiters took time to honor his legacy.
I am shocked people of my age seemingly know so little about this civil rights era …
Selma follows three attempts by civil rights leaders led by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. back in 1965 to stage a peaceful march from Selma, Alabama to Montgomery, Alabama. Even though the events happened nearly 50 years ago, the message is all too timely.
President of the Detroit branch of the NAACP, the Reverend Wendell Anthony, says they’re here to continue Dr. King’s work.
Rudy Simons, who participated in the original march as a young man, will be there.
Local college and high school students are being encouraged to participate in a special video contest called “Now is the Time” — designed to connect Dr. King’s legacy with today’s actions.

A historic event is being planned for this summer in Detroit.
A 70-year-old assistant basketball coach who killed one teenager and wounded another as they attempted to rob him at gunpoint outside of a Detroit high school will not face charges in the case.
One teenager was shot to death, another shot and wounded, around 7:30 p.m. outside Martin Luther King High School on the city’s near west side.
