BATON ROUGE – LSU students paused to remember the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. before returning to classes for the spring semester.

The ceremony, held by various African-American Greek organizations, began with a candle light vigil at the clock tower, and moved into a march to the LSU student union.

There a student from the music department sang the words to the iconic “I Have A Dream” speech.

Students, faculty, and community members told News 2 they were moved by the event, and hoped it did the legacy of Dr. King justice.
