Syracuse University is behind one of the nation's largest celebrations of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. 

Hundreds gathered to pay tribute to Dr. King's legacy Sunday. Community members performed songs, dances, and some were even recognized.

Five people were given Unsung Hero Awards, which recognizes people making a positive difference in the lives of others. 

Amiah Crisler is an 11-year-old whose sidewalk chalk art went viral on Facebook.

"I like to express my feelings, my travels, my paintings, everything into my art, which I think explains a lot." said Crisler.

This year's special guest was comedian and "The Daily Show" host Trevor Noah. He spoke on his book "Born a Crime," the book selected for first-year students' reading program.
