Members of the public in Killeen came out to the annual NAACP Peace March to honor the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Carese Grey, a resident in Killeen said, “It’s not just a holiday to get off from work or not be in school.”
Carlo Davis, Killeen resident and member of the Divine Nine added, “You gotta lead from the front … Martin Luther King Jr. and all those freedom fighters were members of the Divine 9 as well and we have to continue that march.”
The Divine 9 is a group of historically black fraternities and sororities that are founded on scholarship and service to the community.
The march has been a staple in the community for over two decades ... organizers say they plan on coming back next year to continue the march.
