Parade celebrates legacy of Martin Luther King Jr

He would have been 89 years old on Monday.

A local observance will be held beginning at 5 p.m.at Cine El Rey in downtown McAllen.

Locally, the day will be marked with a parade and various activities, just as the holiday is celebrated each year.

This was the 33rd year of the event.

Visitors to the Myriad Gardens Crystal Bridge will celebrate the life of Martin Luther King Jr. from 10 a.m.to 1 p.m. Monday through music, crafts, readings and a soul food tasting at the gardens, 301 W Reno.

Volunteers are asked to meet at Fourth & Hope, located at the northeast corner of Fourth and North streets in Woodland.

Tasks scheduled for the day include landscape cleanup, spreading decomposed granite, organizing and cleaning storage areas, cleaning the kitchen, and pressure washing exterior areas. Day program at about 9:30 a.m. 256-227-8489.

International House is located at 10 College Park in Davis.

In their speeches, students were instructed to write about aspects of the world, the nation or the school they would like to change. "It's about letting the next generation understand that they have a role to play and they have an opportunity to fulfill that role given to them by Dr. King and others involved in the civil rights movement". These are people who have done all kinds of services in the African-American community and cross all boundaries.

It's become a tradition at the Ali Center to show Martin Luther King, Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech. "King believed in using the tactics of nonviolence and civil disobedience based on his religious beliefs and inspiration by Mahatma Gandhi". They contend that Abbott's record of supporting a state voter ID law, threatening to withhold funding from sanctuary cities and support for legislative redistricting is antithetical to the legacy of the civil rights leader.

He campaigned against inequality throughout the South, including leading the 1955 Montgomery bus boycott.

King received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964 for his nonviolent campaign against racism.

His historic "I Have a Dream" speech was delivered during the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom on August 28, 1963, at the Lincoln Memorial. A reading of King's "I Have a Dream" speech is set for 11:30 a.m.at the Water Stage, followed by a performance of the Oklahoma Collegiate Gospel Choir.
