Sugar House, UTAH (ABC 4 News) - Westminster College honored Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Marching through the heart of Sugar House celebrating the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington.

Trisha Teig, Director of Student Involvement & Leadership, put together Monday morning's event. Teig told ABC4, "we are using signs, songs and chants to recreate that historic march on Washington."

They started at the College and made their way to the heart of Sugar House, marching up and down 2100 South.

For the Brandt family, this is a tradition and moment to teach their young boys.

Amy Brandt said, "We feel it is important to let our children know about the legacy of Dr. King."

A teaching moment her family might not always have, but need.

Brandt said, "Especially in Salt Lake which isn't a very integrated city, we want to make sure we know and our family knows how important Doctor King is."

The march was not just a teaching moment, but a message that Dr. King's work is not yet done.

Jeremy Reynoso marched Monday and told ABC4, "It's all about remembering and noticing that there are still a lot of things that need to be done."
