The Annual MLK Community March celebrates Dr. Martin Luther King’s legacy while uplifting diversity and multiculturalism in our city. The MLK Community March kicks off with a program at the MLK Statue on the University of Texas campus at 9 a.m. Then marchers will continue on to the south steps of the State Capital for a short program. We will continue on to the historic Huston-Tillotson University, where exciting activities are planned. In previous years, the march has drawn up to an estimated 15,000 people for this special occasion. All businesses, non-profit organizations and individuals are invited to march with us and celebrate Dr. King’s legacy. The MLK Community Festival kicks off as soon as the marchers arrive on location; it will include business, non-profit & community based vendors and local musical artists to make this year’s celebration the best ever!
