ELKHART — Some may view it as a day off, but a group of community members in Elkhart took Martin Luther King Jr. Day as an opportunity to educate the youth and honor his legacy.

Marchers braved the cold Monday morning to celebrate the slain civil rights activist by carrying signs while walking from the Civic Plaza in downtown Elkhart to Community Missionary Baptist Church on Chapman Avenue as part of Elkhart’s Black Expo Martin Luther King Jr. celebration.
