A feeling that cannot be described filled the morning air at Fountain Square in downtown Cincinnati. A sense of purpose and belonging connected everyone crowding the block. Hundreds of people gathered together to pay tribute to a man who’s legacy lives on in our hearts and minds. Martin Luther King Jr. was born January 16, 1929. Each year we honor him to acknowledge how much he’s helped effect change in the country we live.
Radio One Cincinnati joined the march to Music Hall. We sang songs along the way, shared our thoughts and embraced the moment. Though the walk was short of a mile, it was powerful with every bit of emotion flowing through those his pressed forth. It was truly a magnificent sight to see young, old, black and white smile and move in the same direction together.
Ceremonies began at the Nation Underground Railroad Freedom Center, followed by a stop on Fountain Square, and then the march to Music Hall!
