JACKSONVILLE, Fla.-- It's a sign of the times; a black mayor, a white governor working a crowd together as they celebrate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. at Jacksonville's annual parade.
"Dr. King had a dream of a country where everybody could work together and so it's a great honor to be here today," said Florida Gov. Rick Scott.
This as our first black president celebrates the start of his second term in Washington.
Eugene Foster, 80, took it all in as he watched the parade pass by. He remembers when things were much different.
"I know how it was back then," said Foster. "We had to use the colored water, the colored restroom and the color restaurant. We couldn't go where the whites were. This is a heck of a change."
A change Foster says he can see from the streets of Duval County at Monday's parade all the way to our nation's capitol. A change he says would make Dr. King very proud. "Dr. King, he had a dream and it is coming true," said Foster.
