Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. is one of the most admired and respected people in all of American history. His courage, eloquence, and commitment to justice continue to inspire millions of people year after year. Martin Luther King Jr.’s influence and legacy are so important that President Ronald Reagan named January 20 a national holiday remembering the Rev. King in 1983. This year, you can celebrate the life and legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. at the MLK Grande Parade in Houston. 2019 marks the 25th anniversary of the parade, which will take place on Saturday, January 21. The theme of this year’s parade is “It Takes a Village,” signifying the great roles that we play in the lives of all the people around us. Every year, the MLK Grande Parade draws thousands of people from all around the world to celebrate the life of one of the finest Americans who has ever lived.
