Monday January 21 is the annual MLK Day holiday. For 27 years Tucsonans marched from the UA Mall (Old Main) to Reid Park to celebrate this great civil rights leader who was struck down on April 4, 1968. I’ve walked part way a number of times with this march, and it was a long way from the University of Arizona to Reid Park, and back.
This year the March is moved to the UA campus and will begin at the MLK Student Center at 1322 E. 1st St. (2nd Street and Mountain) and march to Old Main (east side). Then there will be a celebration from 10 to 3:30 p.m. at the UA Mall.

And please join in this march & celebration to remember a great civil rights leader.
