STATESBORO, GA (WTOC) -

In Statesboro, plenty of people packed the street or marched in Monday's Martin Luther King Jr. Day parade. It was an opportunity for many to reflect on King's sacrifices and principles and recognize his place in American history.

"For me, this is truly an honor and to be a part of this time in history is truly an honor for me," said Grand Marshal Liz Johnson.

The parade featured floats from local churches and civic groups as well as bands and performers from local high schools and Georgia Southern University.
