Keeping the dream alive

Posted: Updated:

WEBSTER (CBS 8) - At Annie Belle's Famous Wings and Greens, generations joined in jubilant celebration.

"Everybody from different generations, and celebrating this thing is unbelievable. I think that's how we pass it on," a customer said.

Doctor King's message still resonates in the hearts of those he touched.

"It's so dynamic. It reaches into you," a customer said.

"His message is alive and well and the struggle continues. We still have a long way to go, but we've made progress. We need to make more progress," a customer said.

"I feel like I'm living the dream. I'm from Birmingham, Alabama, so I have family members, friends, people marching with Dr. King and who still continue to struggle, but we've certainly come a long way," another customer said.

Doctor King's dream is not about ethnicity. It's a dream that needs to be shared.

"Some people still remember the dream and some don't. It starts with families having nurtured their kids and raise them up to keep the dream going," a customer said.

There's hope in the faces of youngsters like 10-year-old Marcel, who knows what Dr. King's message was.

"Rights, for equal rights for all people, everybody," he said.

And that's reason to celebrate.

Today inside a small café, a microcosm of a movement is still pushing towards the top of the mountain, driven by a man and his dream.

"I do believe we shall overcome some day," a customer said.
