The Kentucky State University Concert Choir performed for the standing room only crowd, and the university's president, Doctor Mary Evans Sias was the "keynote speaker."

Doctor Sias challenged the crowd, by talking about all the things still left to be done to truly complete Doctor King's dream.

MLK Committee Chairperson, Mike Delaney, says this year's celebration had a different feel than last year's event.

"Last year we celebrated because we had President Obama being elected," said Delaney. "This year, we're just trying to strengthen our ties to equality throughout the community, throughout our neighborhoods, and bringing the community together as a whole."

Youth Football Coach, Danny Carothers, was honored with the 2010 Humanitarian Award.

A collection from this service, as well as an MLK Breakfast held earlier in the day, raised nearly $2,000 that will go to relief efforts in Haiti.

Monday's events were sponsored by the MLK Planning Committee.
