He was fighting for everyone.”Another student, Ashley Bridgewater, says, “It gets us together to really realize how many rights we have and how people still don’t have the rights in other countries, or even in our country today.”AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThis Tags: ACC, discussion, Dr. King, Martin Luther King, MLK DayContinue ReadingPrevious Digital license plate coming to Michigan soonNext Photo of the Day for Tuesday, January 22last_img read more
