San Diego's All Peoples Celebration on Monday honored the legacy of the late civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

The annual event is in its 30th year. This year's theme is STAND. Organizers say at this moment in time they must stand for what they believe in and continue to bring communities together.

Civil rights attorney Eva Paterson was the keynote speaker of Monday's All Peoples Celebration. She is the president and co-founder of the Equal Justice Society.

Paterson will join Midday Edition on Monday to share the message she delivered at this year's event.
