Color of Unity March for Dr. King: Monday January 15th

by on January 8th, 2018

Iowa City’s Black Voices Project is organizing a Color of Unity march for Martin Luther King Jr. Day, which is next Monday! I found out about this event through Facebook, but wanted to get the word out on the library’s blog, too.

Here are the details copied from the Black Voices Project’s Facebook page:

In commemoration of Dr. King’s life, this year, we hope you will join us in honoring Dr. King’s extraordinary work and example during Iowa City’s 1st Annual “COLOR OF UNITY MARCH” on Monday, January 15, 2018.

OUR 2018 GRAND MARSHALLS ARE:
MAZAHIR SALIH & KINGSLEY BOTCHWAY

We would like to see ALL of our community members come together in unity!
Citizens will gather at 9:00a.m. for line up procession at Faith Academy located at 1030 Crosspark Ave., and will start the walk/car procession at 10:00a.m. in a demonstration of strength and support, to Grantwood Elementary School at 1930 Lakeside Dr.

This is a kid-friendly/ senior citizen event, so you are welcome to drive your families in the parade as well!
