About 50 years ago, much of the United States was in turmoil over segregation. Some Americans believed that African Americans and White Americans should be separate while other believed in integration. Following the efforts of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and other Civil Rights leaders, laws were changed to encourage integration.

Today, millions of people around the nation gathered to celebrate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King. There were parades and seminars to encourage racial diversity.

"I think we still have a long way to go, there are still too many racist people in the United States," said Andrew Cohn.

"I think we need to open more people's minds about the realities of racism in the United States," said Patty Kimmel.

"There is still some racism here but I think a lot of it has gone away. People are just to busy to hate," said Monica Tabor.
