CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — The community came together for the 34th annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. commemorative march.

Hundreds joined the event at the Nueces County Courthouse and ended at the Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd on South Upper Broadway.

Many who showed up today say the March not only honors the legacy of Dr. King but continues his fight for civil rights.

"By having supporters come out here and march we're saying to the country, hey, there's still work to be done," said Cat Pettaway Clarke, one of the marchers at today's march.

The march was presented by Delta Sigma Theta Corpus Christi and led by the Veterans Band of Corpus Christi.
