MLK Celebrations in Lubbock

It's been a weekend of celebration in Lubbock in honor of Martin Luther King Jr.

A citywide meeting was held at Lakeridge United Methodist Church Sunday to honor the man who helped pave the way for the civil rights movement of the 1960s. City Councilman Floyd Price, Congressman Randy Neugebauer and many others spoke about the legacy that King left behind and how he help change America. Price says it's a legacy that he hopes will last forever.

The celebrations continue Monday.

Lubbock Christian University's daily chapel will honor Martin Luther King, Jr. Lubbock City Councilman Floyd Price will be the speaker at 9:40am at the Moody Auditorium.

Children can learn about the life and legacy of King at 9am. The Volunteer Center's United Way Youth Division will read to children at two Early Learning Center Locations: 2714 Erskine and 1301 Vanda.

Local talent will perform at "Youth Night" at Estacado High School. The program will start at 6pm.
