King Martin Luther Day Celebrations in Montgomery Press Photo
You are offerding on an original press photo from 0 featuring This young man, rain streaming down his face, took part in a memorial march for the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., yesterday in Montgomery.
Montgomery, Ala. - (UPI) - An estimated 2,000 persons converged on the rain-soaked Alabama Capitol yesterday in a symbolic re-creation of the Selma-to-Montgomery march led by the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., four years ago.
It was one of many tributes being staged across the nation this weekend in memory of the Negro civil rights leader, slain by an assassin's bullet in Memphis April 4, 1968.
A drenching spring rain delayed the march nearby two hours. Leaders finally decided it was not going to let up and ordered the march to proceed regardless.
Some Carrying umbrellas and others bundled in rain gear, they trooped out St. Jude's Catholic complex, where they spent the night, and walked about two miles into Dexter Avenue, where the Capitol and the Dexter Street Baptist Church -- Mr. King's first church - are situated.
The group was preceded by a truck with a gas flame, burning in memory of Dr. King.
Few whites, other than policemen, witnessed the march, and those who did were silent.
About one out of every 20 marchers was white.
Rain put a damper on another Tribute to Dr. King in his hometown of Atlanta. Hundreds had been expected to keep a 44-hour vigil at the40 gold-domed Georgia Capitol, but instead only about 50 rode out the rains. Several hundred persons staged a candlelight march to the Georgia Capitol Friday night.
An Estimated 1,500 to 2,000 persons marched in tribute to Dr. King in Milwaukee and later heard an address by the Rev. James Groppi who led the open-housing drive in Milwaukee in 1967 and 1968.
"I believe King was the greatest American who ever lived," the priest /said. "America had better listen to the words of Martin Luther King, Jr., if it wants to survive."
