'The Dream Lives' kicks off MLK weekend

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

Columbus continues to Keep Martin Luther King Jr.’s dream alive. 

On Saturday morning, the Mayor's Commission on Unity, Diversity and Prosperity hosted its annual The Dream Lives event at the Liberty Theater and cultural district.

The day started with a mile fun run, a 5K marathon, unity processional and special guest Daymond John of Shark Tank.

"It means so much to see Dr. King’s legacy being celebrated, especially in a beautiful town such as this, where you look out and it’s just a rainbow of people coming out in just a joyous manner,” John said. “And also working together because economic empowerment is the only way we can truly be free."

This is the second year that the event has been hosted at the Liberty Theater and cultural district.
