Honoring Martin Luther King Jr.
19 students joins thousands for march to honor Civil Rights leader
Nineteen students and two staff members from Sacramento Job Corps Center joined thousands of other participants for a march through Sacramento to honor the late Civil Rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
The students, along with other marchers, started at the Oak Park Community Center. Another group of marchers started at Sacramento City College, and both groups met at the Sacramento Convention Center, the site of an employment, health and education expo as well as a talent showcase and children’s education village.
The theme of the march, organized by MLK365, was “You are the dream, and the dream is now.” More than 10,000 participants joined in the activities to honor King and remember his legacy.
