Saturday would have been Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s 82nd birthday. Thousands honored his legacy with a parade through downtown Houston. Forty-five bands marched through the streets for the fifth annual MLK youth parade.

People who watched the parade said it was important that younger generations remember what Dr. King did for the cause of freedom for all Americans.
