Valdosta - People in Valdosta celebrated the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Junior in a unique way Monday, by showcasing the talents of their youth.

"Martin Luther King started the vision a long time ago and we want to keep that vision going to let our young people know that they can strive to do whatever they would like to do," said Patricia McRae, Organizer.

The Commemoration Committee also held a march on Saturday and a birthday celebration service Sunday at St. Paul AME church.
