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.
