It felt historic. It was historic. Richmond Hill's first parade honoring Nobel prize winning civil rights leader Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was held Saturday morning.
Organized by the non-profit group Unity In the Community and co-hosted by the city of Richmond Hill, the parade and a celebration that followed in J.F. Gregory Park was both a salute to King's legacy and a reminder that his dream is still alive, and still very much worth pursuing.
More on the celebration in upcoming stories online and in Thursday's paper.
