It was double the celebrations Monday as folks celebrated the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and the second inauguration of America's 1st African-American President at Mt. Zion Missionary Baptist Church in Sioux City.
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal," read Mt. Zion's Rev. Floyd Brown.
They're words that don't seem to fade, or lose meaning decade after decade, at least not to these folks.
"I know if Doctor King were here, he'd still be fighting for what needs to be fixed in America. And he wouldn't just do it for one day, he'd do it everyday," said Marguerite Morris-Cortez of Sioux City.
The celebration wasn't without a touch of politics.
Rev. Brown said, "Today we witnessed the inauguration of President Obama's second term, the 44th president of our country."
Daniel Ford of Sioux City said, "We're moving forward. We're a forward moving country now. And we're picking people based off the content of their abilities."
The theme of Monday night though: while racial progress has been made, it's also, by nature, a change that continues.
"As people of color, we have access without acceptance," said Rev. Brown.
"We're there now. We have arrived so he wouldn't have to say 'have we arrived?' We have people in different positions. I think what MLK would want us to do now is that we're still providing future opportunities for the newcomers," Ford said.
The reason folks gave me as to how Dr. King's message has lasted this long? Well, they said change is never over and it's important to remember where you came from.
