The Tulsa nonprofit hosted the 42nd annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Commemorative Parade. This year's theme is “Standing Strong: for justice, truth, and freedom.”

Each year, over 100 entries participate in the parade featuring themed floats, music and marchers, according to organizers. The parade began at Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard and John Hope Franklin and meandered through historic Greenwood Avenue to Archer, ending near ONEOK Field.

“Dr. King’s message of love, hope and peace is one that is everlasting,” said Pleas Thompson, president of the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Commemoration Society. “His message is every bit as relevant today as it was when he first said the words ‘I have a dream.’ We look forward to the Tulsa community coming together once again to celebrate Dr. King’s message of hope for today and the future."
