Brazos Valley Residents Celebrated the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. at the Lincoln Center in College Station Saturday night.

Hundreds attended the event that payed tribute to the civil rights leader.

Music, praise dancing and motivational speaking all recognized Dr. King's efforts.

And one event organizer says remembering Dr. King takes more than just knowing who he was.

"We have to remember what he stood for and all the things he fought for not just him but all the people back during the civil rights movement," Cheletia Johnson said.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s Birthday will be observed this Monday.
