Milwaukee honors the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
On Monday, January 19, 2015, at 1:00 p.m., St. Francis of
Assisi Catholic Church, located at 1927 N. 4th St., hosted
the annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Justice Program. The
program focused on the last year of Dr. King’s life when he
strongly confronted poverty, economic injustice and the Vietnam
War. Featured were readings of quotes from Dr. King
during the difficult last year of his life when many supporters
and colleagues questioned his public opposition to the war.
Preceding the program attendees marched down Martin Luther
King, Jr. Drive to the King Statue, just north of Walnut
St., where there was an open microphone at which participants
were encouraged to reflect on Dr. King’s work.
