MLK March

January 19, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Free

The 2.75 mile march will begin at 10 a.m. at the MLK Academy located in the 3500 block of MLK Drive and end at Pittman-Sullivan Park, 1101 Iowa (march route and info). Once again, it is expected to draw more than 100,000 adults and children. San Antonio hosts one of the largest marches in the United States.

Although in 2015 the City of San Antonio celebrates the 28th anniversary of this City-sponsored event, the history of the local MLK, Jr. March goes back even further. The late Rev. Dr. Raymond “R.A.” Callies, Sr., a San Antonio teacher, pastor and one of the founders of the San Antonio MLK, Jr. March began leading processions in San Antonio honoring Dr. King’s legacy soon after Dr. King’s death on April 4, 1968 and worked tirelessly to have a statue of Dr. King erected. Since then, community members, each year increasing in number, have gathered to honor the life and legacy of Dr. King. This year’s theme is “Marching Together from Past to Present for Our Future.”
