People across the North Country gathered this week to keep Dr. Martin Luther King’s dream alive, including an event that drew hundreds to the SUNY Plattsburgh campus. Community leaders spoke about Dr. King and the legacy he left behind. Song filled the Newman Center with reminders of the struggles Americans have dealt with and the on-going fight for civil rights. Members of the community who work to spread Dr. King’s message were honored. The Community Choir and Dr. Dexter Criss from SUNY Plattsburgh received citations for their performances at the yearly ceremony, and their work uplifting others.
