Albany - Members of Albany's American Legion Post 512 celebrated the work of Dr. King today. Reverend James Bush, a Vietnam veteran was the guest speaker. He spoke about keeping Dr. King's dream alive, and says we've come a long way in the fight for equality.

Post Commander Donald Randle agrees, but says everyone must continue the work of Dr. King.  He says, "Learn to appreciate each other. Don't let color be a barrier. We should forget about color. We should forget about race and try to work together. Try to live together. That's what Dr. King would have wanted us to do."

If you weren't able to attend a ceremony honoring Dr. King today, you can join one from home Monday night. At 7:30, right here on WALB, we will carry King Day Celebration, live from the Albany Civic Center, featuring former U.N. ambassador and civil rights activist Andrew Young.
