Dozens of people gathered in downtown Lexington Wednesday night in honor of the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington.

They prayed, sang and listened to speeches.

The NAACP and the Kentucky Council on Peace and Justice helped to organize this celebration at the Courthouse Square on Limestone Street.

While people were there, they could volunteer to help with problems related to education and poverty.
