This year's Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. March and Rally will be held on the federally designated holiday in honor of the slain civil rights leader on Monday, Jan. 16 beginning at the Central United Methodist Church in downtown Detroit. This is the third annual King Day march in Detroit. The project was initiated in 2004 by the Michigan Emergency Committee Against War & Injustice (MECAWI). Now the Detroit MLK Committee has grown to encompass many organizations, schools and religious institutions.
