Martin Luther King March Draws Hundreds In Cheyenne
Hundreds of people march from the Cheyenne Depot Plaza to the Wyoming Capitol Building on Monday in tribute to the memory and ideals of slain civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr.
Young and old, Black and White, the crowd represented a diverse representation of the population of Wyoming's Capitol city.
The marchers included several local and state political figures, including Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon, Cheyenne Mayor Patrick Collins, Laramie County Sheriff Brian Kozak, and many others.
Martin Luther King/Wyoming Equality Day was made an official state holiday in 1990, largely due to the efforts of state legislator Harriet ''Liz'' Byrd of Cheyenne.
The Cheyenne event was held in conjunction with numerous other events across the country honoring the memory and ideals of the slain civil rights leader.
