The annual MLK Day Freedom March began shortly after 11 a.m. Monday after a crowd gathered in Lot 56 near the corner of Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Razorback Road in Fayetteville.
This year’s event was sponsored by the Northwest Arkansas Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Council, the University of Arkansas, and the City of Fayetteville.
Participants sang and chanted while marching along Razorback Road through the University of Arkansas campus and to the Student Union for the traditional noon vigil sponsored by the university’s Associated Student Government and the Black Students Association.
