January 20 is Martin Luther King Jr. day.
The Amarillo Ministerial Alliance held their sunday service in honor of the American hero.
The service was at the Jenkins Baptist Church with senior pastor Dr. Steven Staten.
Pat Mathis, the president of Amarillo United Citizens Board says, "we have to remember each year, and usually every day so that we can be thankful and get along together. The celebration is a remembrance, of where we come from, and where we're trying to go. "
The service is in fact an annual service put on by the ministerial alliance.
