A walk to honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Posted

Hundreds gathered at Glen Cove’s First Baptist Church to take part in the city’s 36th annual Martin Luther King, Jr. March on Jan. 20. The event paid tribute to King’s fight for equality and to the Civil Rights Movement he helped lead. The march proceeded from the church on Continental Place through downtown Glen Cove to the Wunsch Arts Center at Finley Middle School. 

The annual march that honors King was originally spearheaded by former Mayor Vincent Suozzi and Chairman Emeritus James Davis in 1985. Sheryl Goodine, Davis’s daughter, was this year’s chairperson for the event.
