LOS ANGELES (AP) - Thousands of people lined the streets of South Los Angeles to for a Martin Luther King Jr. Day parade that is among the nation's biggest celebrations of the holiday.

Monday's 33rd annual Kingdom Day Parade down Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Crenshaw Boulevard was themed "When They Go Low, We Go High." The theme was inspired by a comment by former First Lady Michelle Obama about what she told her daughters on how to deal with someone who is cruel or acts like a bully.

Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris was grand marshal of the procession that included floats, equestrian teams and marching bands.

LA Mayor Eric Garcetti and LA County Sheriff Jim McDonnell also took part in the parade.
