KNOXVILLE (WATE) – Dozens of East Tennesseans prayed Wednesday night, saying thanks for the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Fifty years ago, Dr. King and hundreds of thousands of people marched for equality in Washington.

Several people who were there and many others attended a get-together in Knoxville to remember him.

Wayne Noble photographed Dr. King at the march.

"It was the absolute turning point of this county in the right place," said Noble. "And Dr. King, he handled that. Period. I cannot even imagine anyone else that even could come close to what happened. It would not have happened."

He adds we still have a long way to true equality.
