Northwest Missouri State University plans MLK peace march

MARYVILLE, Mo. (AP) -- Northwest Missouri State University is planning a peace march to mark Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

   Marchers will gather at 12:30 p.m. Monday in the Student Union Ballroom. From there, they will march to the steps of the Nodaway County Courthouse to hear from speakers.

   Panel discussions will be part of a brunch that will precede the march. Students also are encouraged to volunteer Monday at a nursing home in the area.

   In the days that follow, "I Have a Dream" boards will be located around campus, where students and faculty can share their own dreams. The King remembrances will wrap up Friday with a Unity Celebration in the Student Union. People will be invited to perform poetry, songs and dances promoting themes such as peace and unity.
