Today in Norfolk, dozens of people marched to remember Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. during the MLK Memorial at Brambleton Avenue and Church Street.

That was the site of a ceremony remembering and honoring the civil rights leader.

"I remember the sit-ins, I remember when we first integrated the movies and theaters here along Granby Street, I remember where we couldn't go into the lunch counters here on Granby Street - so it's all important. I'm proud to see how far we've come as a nation," says James Harvey, who participated in the march.
