Today was the national observance of Martin Luther King Day. At Central United Methodist many activists from across the city gathered. The fight for human, civil, social, economic, and environmental rights was palpable throughout the day. We started with speakers and presentations to acknowledge what has been accomplished with a message aimed at the present and future. This was followed by a march through the streets past the North American International Auto Show at Cobo Hall (happening at this time). After the march we came together for a meal and entertainment from various poets and musicians.
