Prayer vigil held in memory of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.

Marlboro County Branch NAACP President Pearlie Lawson was 12 when Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. was shot.
“I could never forget how sad I was as a child crying because I knew something was wrong,” Lawson said. “We cried and we prayed. We will never forget what Dr. King meant to us.”
The Marlboro County NAACP and community pastors held a prayer vigil Wednesday night to mark the 50th anniversary of the assassination of King.
NAACP member Gwendolyn Dixon-Coe reminded those in attendance that even though they had lost Dr. King, they hadn’t lost the dream.
“When you leave, leave with the mind to continue the legacy,” she said. 
Various pastors shared what happened to King on April 4, 1968.
