The local Maine NAACP hosted their annual Martin Luther King Day celebration on Monday, January 16 at the Holiday Inn By the Bay in downtown Portland.

As part of the celebrations of the day and to remember the civil rights leader's work, the Maine NAACP projected photos and quotes on the side of the hotel for the entire city to see.

The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of convenience and comfort, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.

You cannot be afraid to speak up and speak out for what you believe. You have to have courage, raw courage.

- John Lewis
