LONG BEACH - Singing songs like "We Shall Overcome," and "One Tin Soldier," the fifth grade class at Long Beach School paid tribute to the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. at an assembly last Friday.

One of the highlights of the program was a short play put on by Kelly Jacobsen's 4th/5th grade class that told of Dr. King as a young boy growing up in the south. Fifth-grader Jose Louis Gonzalez-Sebastian played the young King in the play.
