Bronx residents celebrate the life and teachings of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Residents across the Bronx remembered Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Monday.
Although King was assassinated 36 years ago, his life and teachings are very much alive in the Bronx. Residents packed into the Trinity Baptist Church in Williamsbridge to remember the slain civil rights leader.
Residents say they remember the day King was killed and still today try to carry on his message. King fought for equality through peaceful protest and residents say because of it their lives are better.
While King's life and mission has special meaning to the black community, those of different races and ethnicities say his teachings of peace and equality helped improve their lives as well.
