The annual Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., parade - now in its 19th year - took place Monday afternoon in downtown Kingsport with more than 100 men, women and children in attendance.
Kingsport designated the 2.3 mile long Lincoln Street the “Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr Memorial Parkway” on Friday, on the 90th anniversary celebration of the civil rights leader’s birth. Ultimately, community leaders hope to officially rename all of Lincoln Street in honor of Dr. King.
