Alfonso López-Vasquez, Associate Professor and Director of Diversity at Pacific University, speaks to the group prior to the march. Forest Grove, OR. 

Monday I had the wonderful opportunity to participate in and photograph a march, in remembrance of Martin Luther King, Jr.,  through the town of Forest Grove, OR. The group of people in attendance were spirited and good-natured. All exhibited genuine appreciation towards what was a diverse crowd of about 100. For a small town, this was a good number, particularly since this was their first MLK Day march in many years. And, as is often the case, it’s not just the number of people but the quality of person that counts.

Here are some of my favorite MLK Day photos.
