The King Dream Lives On in Glen Cove
The community of Glen Cove came out this week, as it does each year, to honor and keep alive the memory of slain civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The day began with the traditional march from the First Baptist Church on Continental Place to the Wunsch Auditorium at Finley Middle School, a march made in tribute to Dr. King's steps toward equality and voting rights in Montgomery, Selma and Washington, D.C. The Glen Cove march was replete with song and spirit led by Sheryl Goodine.
