On August 6, 2016, the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Living Memorial Project will commemorate the 50th anniversary of Dr.
Martin Luther King, Jr.’s historic 1966 march through Chicago’s Marquette Park. Recalling the larger legacy of the march – and remembering the struggle for justice and equity – is more urgent now than ever in our city, across our nation and around the world.
The Takin’ It to the Streets Festival
Takin’ It to the Streets is an international festival where artistic expression, spirituality and urban creativity inspire social change. This year’s Takin’ It to the Streets Festival will commemorate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s legacy in Marquette Park on Saturday, August 6, using the power of art, activism and relationship-building to radically re-imagining the City and the world. The 1000 Mile March will lead into Marquette Park that morning and will kick off the festival that afternoon.
The festival will engage thousands of people through music, dance, family activities, inspirational talks, and a bazaar.
