MLK March, Festival, and Food Drive
The Annual Community March celebrates Dr. Martin Luther King’s legacy while uplifting diversity and multi-culturalism in our city. The MLK Community March kicks off on Monday, January 21, 2019 at 9 a.m. with a short program at the MLK Statue on the University of Texas campus..
We will then march to the historic Huston-Tillotson University, where exciting activities are planned. All businesses, non-profit organizations and individuals are invited to march and celebrate Dr. King’s legacy.
** As standard during gubernatorial inauguration years, the march will not visit the Capitol this year due to preparations for the inauguration.
The Whole Family will Enjoy the MLK Festival
Make plans to stay at Huston-Tillotson after the march. Great music, great food, children’s play area, and community vendors make the Festival a great place to spend the afternoon.
