Casper Residents Honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Equality [PHOTOS]
Casper residents honored a man who had a dream.
About 100 area residents marched downtown, in honor of the late Doctor Martin Luther King Junior.
Jason Marsden, Executive Director of the Matthew Shepherd Foundation, says that Doctor King did more than take up the fight for racial harmony.
“Martin Luther King was working on livable wage issues and dignity for garbage workers in Memphis when he was killed. He understood that poverty and militarism and racism were interlocking issues, that all had to be addressed in concert or the promise of actual life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness for everyone was never going to be achieved.”
The Martin Luther King Junior holiday is also observed as Wyoming Equality Day.
