Valdosta - South Georgia children are keeping Dr. Martin Luther King Junior's dream alive.

People in Valdosta remembered Dr. King Monday with a Youth Showcase at St. Paul A.M.E. Church. Students sang, read inspirational poems, and gave speeches about Dr. King's vision for equality.

"We haven't fulfilled the dream yet and the young people have to step in and continue it and in order for them to do that they have to know the history," said City Councilman Sonny Vickers.

Valdosta's M.L.K. Commemorative Committee also held a march Saturday and a worship service Sunday at South Side Church of Christ.
