Martin Luther King in Los Angeles
Throughtout the country today we should be reflecting on the profound influence Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. had on our society and culture and be thankful he arose when he did. Besides being throughtful we should also be joyous and celebrate the memory of this great American. Here in Los Angeles we have daily reminders of MLK — a boulevard, a hospital, schools and parks — named to remind us of his efforts to promote equality in our democratic nation. The photo at left is the space shuttle Endeavour making its way through the center of Los Angeles on Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard on its way to a new home at the California Science Center in Exposition Park.
To enjoy the festivities today we are suggesting to our private luxury tour guests visiting Los Angeles that we drive over to Leimert Park Village where music, food and crafts will be abundant and where a parade will be held in celebration of Martin Luther King Day.
