The ceremony was a progressive one, beginning in front of the University Avenue pedestrian underpass and concluding at the Memorial Fountain in the Presidential Plaza. During the ceremony, individuals contemplated the role which King played in the advancement of individuals' rights. Some participants also offered remarks about King himself.
