Feature Entry: Martin Luther King, Jr. and Walking
One of the things that distinguished Martin Luther King, Jr. was his “freedom marches” (walks) to draw attention to the cause of achieving a higher level of equality for African Americans. In New York City, a great walking city, one of their culturally societies is the NYC Discovery Walking Tours. This past week end they featured a walk titled the Martin Luther King, Jr. Walking Tour of Harlem to mark the birth of Dr. King (January 18). The tour of Harlem included stops at the Apollo Theatre, Lenox Lounge where Billie Holiday performed and the site of the NYC assassination attempt.
