The 1000 Mile March

On August 6, 2016, the 1,000 Mile March recreated a portion of Dr. King and The Chicago Freedom Movement’s historic 1966 march into Marquette Park and celebrated the tremendous efforts of community members, organizations and institutions to create a more just city¬†while recognizing that we still have many more miles to go. King marched with 700 others that August 5th day and The 1000 Mile March brought thousands of people together from across the city and country for unity, peace, and justice.
