Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Parade
January 21 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
Houston’s 2019 MLK parade will be held in downtown Houston on January 21st, where U.S. Congressman John Lewis of Georgia and Astros outfielder George Springer will serve as Grand Marshalls. This year’s event will honor the memory of Ovide Duncantell who was one of the City’s most prolific civil rights activist and founder of The Black Heritage Society. He passed away in 2018 and in a way his fight for African Americans has come full circle, just as it did in 1978 with the first MLK celebration.
