Gov. Butch Otter and First Lady Lori Otter offered a few remarks and a prepared declaration for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day and Idaho Human Rights Day on Monday.

First Lady Lori Otter also thanked all the families that came out to the event, and encouraged people to take a copy of the children's book she wrote about the recently remodeled state capitol.
Following the Otters was Boise motivational speaker Cherie Buckner-Webb, who gave the event's keynote address, entitled "It's a New Day." Webb gives her perspective on King's legacy and the current state of civil rights in Idaho and the U.S.
