"It means that we need to do things now to stop them from happening later", said Scenic Middle School 7th Grader Natalie Lindbloom.

"It's something maybe we are out of date on, and I think maybe we need to update and make that a holiday that we observe", Hasek said.

Gov. John Carney (D) called for Delawareans to be agitators for progress and serve others through grace and love.

Now, more than 54 years later, America is still working toward the dream King fought and died for.

"If Dr. King was alive today and if he was to hear that, he would be very disappointed", Quadir said.

But there may still be some work before Dr. Kings dream is fully realized.

They spoke of how the Civil Rights Movement affected people from all walks of life with so many of them reflecting on Dr. King's contribution and how there is still a divide today. "I'm here to tell you tonight that there is only one race, and that is the human race".

Hudson also states it's important to remember that Dr. King's non-violence message was not one of non-action.

Months before MLK 50, thousands of people packed the National Civil Rights Museum to pay their respects.
