MLK breakfast brings together local leaders


The annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. breakfast took place Monday morning.  The event which was held at the Century Center in South Bend brought together many local leaders.

Peace and tolerance were some of the themes for the celebration.  The keynote speaker, Cleo Washington, was a former Indiana State Senator.

He says that Dr. King's message still resonates today.

"It requires a shift from a sole focus on race to a focus on class status, to make sure there is a true opportunity class," says Washington.

Local Mayors and Indiana Senator Joe Donnelly were just some of those in attendance.
