VC Star: Oxnard annual MLK march draws crowd

January 20, 2014

A number of local politicians and officials were on hand for the march, including state Sen. Hannah-Beth Jackson, D-Santa Barbara, who said it is important for those who were alive when King, who was assassinated on April 4 1968, was spreading his message of nonviolence to pass those ideals down to the next generation.
“Dr. King caused us to rise to a higher level. There are not many who remember him and what an inspiration he was,” Jackson said.
