INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Across the country and in central Indiana, groups on Monday honored the legacy left behind by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Government officers were closed and many schools took the day off, but some still offered a way for students to remember him. UIndy adjusts its class schedule each year so students and faculty can attend the program.

At University of Indianapolis, Rozelle Boyd recalled his involvement in the 1963 March on Washington.

Boyd is the first black member of the Marion City County Council. Students carried picket signs to dramatize the historic event.

On Monday afternoon, doors opened for a concert from Gospel Singer Marvin Sapp, along with the university’s “Voices of Worship” gospel choir.

The performance was in the school’s Christel DeHaan Fine Arts Center.
