first_imgBINGHAMTON (WBNG) — On Monday evening there will be a celebration to remember the life of Martin Luther King Jr. in downtown Binghamton. The marchers will gather at the statue in downtown Binghamton around 6 p.m. The memorial celebration and service at the Salvation Temple is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. “Maybe we’re not under attack as much as back in the 60s, but even today we still need to be vocal, we need to be on the front line and say we’re here. We’re not just going to just stop marching, we’re going to continue to march. We’re going to continue to talk about the things that Dr. Martin Luther King did,” he said. The march will start at the Martin Luther King Jr. statue downtown and end at the Salvation Temple for a memorial service in honor of King. “It’s very important that we march today as they marched yesterday,” said Arthur W. Jones Jr. of the Broome County Martin Luther King Commission. last_img
