“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: What are you doing for others?” – Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
More than 100,000 San Antonio residents representing all cultural and economic backgrounds are expected to participate in the 2014 Martin Luther King Jr. March. It’s the city’s 27th year to celebrate the life and legacy of Dr. King, and San Antonio hosts one of the largest marches and commemorations in the U.S. The march is 2.75 miles and begins at the Martin Luther King Jr. Academy and ends at Pittman Sullivan Park.
DREAMWEEK – The MLK march is one of the high points of DreamWeek, San Antonio’s 12-day celebration of diversity and tolerance that begins Jan. 10. DreamWeek’s theme is “Advance the Voice,” and the 12-day citywide summit is intended to promote an exchange of ideas on universal issues. The goal is to advance and modernize the teachings and vision of Dr. King to create dialogue across cultures and communities.
DreamWeek will include a series of keynote speaking engagements, luncheons, mixers, events and celebrations. The 12-day summit is hosted in partnership with businesses, community groups and civic-minded individuals to promote San Antonio as a model city of diversity, higher education and medical breakthroughs, with a growing business climate and an exceptional quality of life.
