It has been 40 years since Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated outside of his Memphis, TN hotel room. As a baptist minister on the forefront of the civil rights movement, Dr. King lead many famous boycotts, marches, and protests through his ideas of "civil disobedience" in order to bring light to the plight of African Americans in the United States. Since his death many advances have come in regards to equality in America, yet many feel that the work of Dr. King and other civil rights workers must not be forgotten. So every year on the anniversary of Dr. Kings birth, Cincinnati citizens gather to march in remembrance of the progress made and to bring light to current issues.
