“Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable… Every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice, suffering, and struggle; thetireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals.”—Martin Luther King Jr


The March started at Sacramento City College some 34 years ago, and it makes sense for the march to go where it began, especially as it is fast becomingthe destination for place for most Northern Californians to celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Withplenty of free parking, walking distance to public transit, and close access to the freeway forthose coming from out of town
