Attendees heard scripture readings, songs and personal accounts of prejudice from Rapid City Mayor Sam Kooiker and Bishop Kelly. Assistant Pastor Elder Troy Carr says he hopes the residents of Rapid City get a sense of what it really means to be a community.
Carr says, "We call it a Martin Luther King Day community celebration because we really feel as Dr. Martin Luther King taught, that it's a community, to bring the community together not necessarily one man but bringing everybody together to celebrate freedom and the Civil Rights movement."
Carr says this year's Martin Luther King, Jr. Day is more special because it coincided with the inauguration of President Barack Obama for his second term.
