Dueling MLK Parades


In this Monday, Jan. 15, 2018 photo, a quote from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., is carried during The
"Original" MLK, Jr. Parade in Houston. For more than two decades, competing MLK Day parades
have been held in Houston. This year, the city of Houston threw its official support behind one parade,
the 41st annual “Original” MLK, Jr. Parade, hoping the city could unite behind only one parade. But
organizers of the other parade, the 25th annual MLK Grande Parade, will still be holding its event and
they say they have no plans to stop having their own parade. (Brett Coomer /Houston Chronicle via AP)
