CALDWELL, Idaho — A ceremony was held at the Indian Creek Plaza in Caldwell to celebrate the work and legacy of Martin Luther King Jr on Sunday night. Attendees gathered for a candle-light march, which was followed by a speech from a local civil rights activist.

A ceremony will also be held on Monday at the Idaho State Capitol Building to honor King and celebrate Idaho Human Rights Day. At the ceremonies, Gov. Brad LIttle will deliver a statement, followed by a keynote speech by Boise State President Dr. Marlene Tromp.
