On a comfortably brisk morning in City Park, thousands of people gathered to march in remembrance of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

We asked a few marchers of how to keep King's spirit and message alive in 2011, 43 years after his death.

"We need to do more than this one day of coming together. We need to raise awareness and constantly talk about Martin Luther King's legacy," says Carter.
