SAN ANTONIO — On Monday, in honor of Martin Luther King Jr.’s lasting legacy, San Antonians gathered to march in one of the largest organized marches in the country.

This year’s march is the Alamo City’s 50th march.

On January 19, 1987, the MLK Jr. Commission and the City of San Antonio held its first official march. Every year since, a variety of educational, inspirational and celebratory events honor one of the nation's most revered civil rights leaders.

The march will began at the MLK Academy and ended at Pittman-Sullivan Park.

Approximately 300,000 participants attend each year.
