Hundreds of citizens - some too young to remember Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. - honored the memory of the slain civil rights leader in a midday celebration, dubbed a "Day of Greatness." Retirees, students and scores of parents, many with toddlers, marched from the campus of Boise State, up Capitol Boulevard to the Idaho Statehouse to rally for the universal themes of human rights, justice and equality.

Meanwhile, inside the Capitol Building, Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter and Marilyn Shuler, former director of the Idaho Human Rights Commission, took part in a formal ceremony to mark King's birthday and Idaho Human Rights Day.
