Sam Starks, one of the march organizers, says it’s a living embodiment of King’s vision – people of all races joining together in fellowship. But Starks says don’t call it a “memorial march.”
"We don’t have memorial marches anymore. But we have marches that mean something today. We’re still having too many shootings and too many gangs and drugs and some schools are underperforming and so we really want to say that there’s hope."
The theme of this year’s march is “Building a Community of Hope”. It starts at 8:30 this morning at the Oak Park Community Center and ends at the Sacramento Community Center for a job fair and expo.
