MLK Day at the Capitol

Members of the Masons' Capital City Lodge, No. 2, of Madison, prepare to march as part of the honor guard at the beginning of "Heal The World," the 31st Annual State of Wisconsin tribute and ceremony honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., in the Capitol rotunda in Madison, Wis., Monday, Jan. 17, 2011.

Director Dinorah Marquez warms up her group, Latino Arts Mariachi Juvenil, from Milwaukee, with a practice session in a Capitol foyer before performing at "Heal The World."

Those in attendance joined hands during a singing of "We Shall Overcome."

With the words, "Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!", Sedric Morris, Jr., 12, ends a recitation of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s "I have a Dream" speech, concluding the program.
