Parade participants honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in Biloxi, Mississippi, on Monday, January 16, 2017. The Biloxi City Council voted unanimously in favor of changing an old ordinance that referred to the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. National Holiday as "Great Americans Day". The city now officially recognizes the third Monday of January each year as "Birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.". The amendment was fully supported and encouraged by Biloxi Mayor "FoFo" Gilich.
