WASHINGTON — Despite bone-chillingly cold weather, the Martin Luther King Jr. Peace Parade will take place in Southeast D.C. on Monday.
The 38th annual parade starts at 12 p.m. from Martin Luther King, Jr. Avenue, SE and ends near Good Hope Road, SE at 2 p.m. It’ll be preceded by a peace walk to the start of the parade route at 11 a.m., which sets out from the ONE DC Black Workers Center near the Anacostia Metro station. See a map of the parade route.
“The Martin Luther King Jr. Parade symbolizes the need to continue Dr. King’s work,” the event’s website said, “and reinforces the idea reflected in his words, ‘Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable … every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice, suffering, and struggle; the tireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals.'”
