(MURFREESBORO) Bone chilling temperatures and snow flurries on Monday (1/20/2020) did not deter several hundred from participating in the 16th Annual Martin Luther King, Jr. March from Central Magnet School to the Patterson Community Center.

Murfreesboro Police escorts cleared traffic as the marchers left the school at noon, and walked down Hancock Street to the Patterson Center.

Once the marchers arrived at the Patterson Center, a Providence Christian Academy student read a poem and a middle school student from Blackman presented Dr. King's "I Have A Dream" speech.
