The theme of this year's celebration was "50 Years Forward: A Legacy of the Past and A Vision of the Future," honoring and acknowledging both Dr. King and the far-reaching sacrifices and growth of all people within the context of the movement. 2013 marks the 50th year anniversary of the Civil Rights Movement and the second term inauguration of the United States' first African-American President, Barack Obama.
