Bristol: “The Legacy Lives” MLK Parade

January 21, 2019 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm


The Bristol Train Station Board, YWCA NETN and SWVA and APEC will host a community observance of the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The commemoration event will be held on the national King holiday. Our theme, “The Legacy Lives” reminds us that the work Dr. King began is still important and unfinished. The celebration will bring greater awareness to Dr. King’s work and mission, promote unity and diverse participation within our community, educate, encourage and inspire deeper community dialogue, and help us to learn from the past.

Marchers will meet at 1:30 p.m. at two locations: First Christian Church on MLK Blvd in Bristol, VA and the YMCA on MLK Blvd in Bristol, TN. The march will begin at 2:00 p.m. The program at Bristol Train Station will begin at 2:45 p.m. and conclude around 3:45 p.m. The program will feature special readings and music.
