On August 6, 2016, the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Living Memorial Project will commemorate the 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s historic 1966 march through Chicago’s Marquette Park. Recalling the larger legacy of the march – and remembering the struggle for justice and equity – is more urgent now than ever in our city, across our nation and around the world.
1,000 MILE MARCH
The 1,000 Mile March will recreate a portion of Dr. King’s
historic 1966 march into Marquette Park.
