ST. CROIX — Communities across the nation gathered to honor the legacy of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. on Monday, and on St. Croix it was no different.

Hundreds marched through the streets of downtown Frederiksted during the early morning on what would have been King’s 91st birthday to celebrate the life of one of the most lauded civil rights activists.
