    COOS COUNTY, Ore. - Martin Luther King's 90th birthday was celebrated on Monday in Coos County.

    The Human Rights Advocates of Coos County held a ceremony at the Pony Village Mall. It included speakers, songs, and student artwork that encompassed the activist.

    "Our theme is ‘Do you stand for justice like MLK did?’ Or just us, we're really inviting people to consider what kind of justice they stand for,” said Bitten Duggin, a human rights advocate. “The children's artwork is different visions the teachers had to bring awareness to MLK and his themes of living."

    The student artwork be on display until Thursday.

    A representative of the Human Rights of Coos County group will be there from 11-3 through Thursday.
