MLK Day marchers fill Pack Square

Waving banners and singing, about 300 people marched into Pack Square around noon to mark Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. The march, followed by speeches and music, was the capstone of several days of events celebrating King’s message of racial equality, peace and social justice. Photos of the event below:
