Celebrating MLK Day

On Monday, January 19th, several members of the Northshore New Jim Crow Task Force joined the Ministerial Alliance March in Slidell, Louisiana, in celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. The march started at 1 p.m. at City Hall on Second Street and ended at the Mount Olive AME Church, and was the culmination of a weekend celebration that began on Saturday with a Youth and Talent Showcase Night at the Pentecost Missionary Baptist Church in Slidell. The celebration ended with a performance after the march of The City Wide Revival Choir.
