Marchers sang spirituals as they marched the nine blocks from the Randolph County Courthouse, north on Marr Street to the Pocahontas Community Center, where they heard speeches on the significance of Dr. King and the Martin Luther King federal holiday.

Following the gathering at the Community Center the crowd moved to the warmth of the Eddie Mae Herron Center for a lunch of hot chili.
