A quote from Martin Luther King Jr., whose legacy was honored by Westminster College's annual march.

Students and community members marched in Salt Lake City during a rally on Martin Luther King Jr. Day chanting, "This is what democracy looks like."

Westminster College's annual march brought together students, families and members of the local chapter of the Black Lives Matter group.

Holli Yoho says she comes each year with her children to show her children the privileges of democracy. She said this year the event took on increased importance due to the political climate.

Marcher Oliver Anderson says the event showed "how easy it is to come together."

Marc Coles-Ritchie has come each of the past seven years with his children to honor King's legacy. Coles-Ritchie says there's still racial bias in the United States and much work to be done.
