People participate in the annual MLK March celebrating Dr. Martin Luther King's legacy.

The annual community MLK march and festival celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King’s legacy while uplifting diversity and multi-culturalism in Austin. Local businesses, non-profit organizations and individuals will march and celebrate Dr. King’s legacy. KUT and KUTX are participating in the community festival at Huston-Tillotson University – stop by our tent to meet some of our journalists and on-air hosts, and pick up station swag.

The march starts at 9 a.m., Jan. 16, at the MLK statue on the east mall of University of Texas campus with a short program, followed by the march to the south steps of the Capitol for a rally. Following the rally, the march will continue to Huston-Tillotson University for the community festival, beginning at 11:15 a.m.

The community festival includes food and retail vendors, music and more. Attendees are encouraged to bring non-perishable food items for the Central Texas Food Bank. The festival runs through 3:30 p.m.
