A breakfast and prayer service start off Monday's Martin Luther King, Jr Day events. The celebration culminates with a program at Music Hall.

MLK Coalition President Jay Payne says there won't be a keynote speaker this year.

"We have three youth group presenters who are presenting in a more spoken word and theater tradition," says Payne.

Payne says that theme is Continuing King's legacy. The 40th annual civil rights march begins at 10:30 a.m. at the Freedom Center. It continues on to Fountain Square and to the annual celebration at Music Hall at noon.
