Detroit's MLK Day Commemoration attracted a large audience to the Central United Methodist Church on Jan. 16. Later a larger crowd marched through downtown Detroit. This was the third annual demonstration in honor of the late civil rights leader who was assassinated on April 4, 1968. This year's event was the most organized and politically relevant manifestation of the last three years when the Detroit MLK Day March was created.
