BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -
Several service projects and other events are scheduled in the Baton Rouge area for the holiday honoring Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
A program was held before the annual parade at the Mt. Zion Baptist Church in downtown Baton Rouge. The key speaker was Dr. Lloyd Benson of the Cathedral World Worship Center. Benson asked for unity throughout the community and among all races and faiths. He also spoke to gun violence in the black community.
"Dr. King was about non-violence, I'm the same in illegal guns in the hands of criminals should not be," Benson said. "They take the lives of innocent people."
The group marched from the church to near the governmental building, where they had lunch. The crowd was thin this year because many dignitaries are at the president's inauguration.
