Monday, people from North Dakota and Minnesota came together to celebrate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Monday's event was planned by the University of North Dakota and the University of Minnesota Crookston. People from both the Grand Forks and Crookston communities turned out for Monday's celebration of the man often regarded as the face of the non-violent civil rights movement.

The full-day event started with a unity walk from Central High School to the Empire Theater where the festivities continued with a program on the many faces of civil rights.

The program featured several speakers, dance and spoken word performances. All highlighting the diversity of the civil rights movement. The festivities continued into the afternoon with service learning projects led by UND and UMC students.
