Hundreds attend Detroit MLK Day march
Yesterday, hundreds of people appeared at Martin Luther King, Jr. High School to participate in Detroit’s Martin Luther King Day march.
The 3rd annual march is sponsored by Detroit Public Schools. Both students and adults were in attendance to celebrate the legacy of civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Inside the school, volunteers registered students turning 18-years old before the November presidential election to vote.
Some of the event attendees noted that Martin Luther King, Jr. had a special connection to the city of Detroit. The first reading of his famous “I Have a Dream” speech was given at Cobo Hall in Detroit in 1963. In addition, every year, King gave a sermon at Central United Methodist Church in Detroit.
