ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB News Channel 5)--The annual Martin Luther King Day luncheon was held Monday on the campus of Louisiana State University at Alexandria.

The annual luncheon raises money for the university's Ebony Scholarship.  Local attorney Ingrid Johnson was the featured speaker.  Her message was for each individual to step up and help make a difference in their community.  Johnson says it all begins with commitment.

"Making a commitment to that I will be the change in my community, that I will not turn my head when I see wrong doings, that I will not say that it's someone else's, someone else's responsibility to act," Johnson said.

More than 275 people turned out for the luncheon.
