Tucson’s Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration March is expected to kickoff Monday morning at 8 a.m. near MLK Way and 36th Street.

This years community theme is “Equality, Justice and Love.” KGUN spoke with Chairperson Pastor Grady Scott, who shares more about what attendees can expect.

“There will probably be singing. Some of the songs of the movement. But we really want to help people to focus on what this means and what they can do to make this a reality in their lifetime,” Scott said.
