All Hail the King
New Mexico is a long ways from Montgomery, Alabama, but the civil rights achievements precipitated there by Martin Luther King Jr. have an incredibly vast reach. Honor his legacy of peace today as the annual Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday Parade marches through Downtown Albuquerque. At 1 p.m., the march starts at the corner of University and Martin Luther King Jr. NE and reaches its conclusion at Civic Plaza, where you can attend a commemorative ceremony with music and talks by local community leaders.
