The dream lives on, and Central Wyoming residents were respecting it.

About 100 area residents marched downtown, in honor of the late Doctor Martin Luther King Junior.

James Simmons is the President of the Casper branch of the NAACP.

He says King is a symbol in the fight for racial harmony, and that the amount of progress, continues to grow.

"People are becoming more and more aware that we need to have a colorless society, and we see that, and they're also being educated to the point, that they know that they got to transform relationships. Instead of focusing on the problem, we need to transform relationships that hold up the problem."

The Martin Luther King Junior holiday is also observed as Wyoming Equality Day.
