(Jan. 17, 2014) -- The City of San Antonio will host the Martin Luther King Jr. March at 10 a.m., Monday, Jan. 20. The event will begin at the Martin Luther King Jr. Academy in the 3500 block of MLK Drive and end at Pittman-Sullivan Park, 1101 Iowa.

A number of UTSA groups will attend including students who participated in the recent The Progression Civil Rights Trip, along with members of GLBTQ, Black Student Union, NAACP, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Omega Psi Phi Fraternity and the Epsilon Sigma chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity.

San Antonio's march is one of the largest in the United States. The MLK Commission organizes the march and leads a community effort with events across the city paying tribute to King.
