On January 19, 1987 the Commission and the City of San Antonio held its first official Martin Luther King, Jr. March. Each year, a variety of educational, inspirational and celebratory events honor one of the nation’s most revered civil rights leaders.
The signature event, the annual Martin Luther King, Jr. March, is scheduled for Monday, January 21, 2019. The march will begin at 10:00 a.m. at the MLK Academy located at 3501 MLK Drive and end at Pittman-Sullivan Park, 1101 Iowa (march route and info).
