Community members gathered to remember the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Monday in a breakfast at the Dunn Community Center, a parade down Broad Street in Dunn and a rally inside Dunn City Hall's council chambers.

"Dr. Martin Luther King as we well know was characterized as a drum major for justice," Rep. Garland Pierce told the crowd at the breakfast. "No single person can strike up the band to get it going like the drum major. When Dr. King came he was able to put all of that great symphony of different groups together to make a change in America."

The Harnett County NAACP hosted the breakfast.

The MLK Observance Committee organized the day's events.
