The Springfield (Illinois) Branch of the NAACP will be host the annual Martin Luther King Jr. Unity March on Monday, Martin Luther King Jr. Day. The march will start at 11 a.m. at Pilgrim Rest Missionary Baptist Church, 1800 S. Martin Luther King Jr. Drive, and continue to Pleasant Grove Baptist Church, 908 S. Martin Luther King Jr. Drive.
Past marches have attracted a diverse crowd. “It’s black, it’s white, it’s Baptist, Jewish, Christian, Catholic and Muslim. We all come out and march in unity,” said Teresa Haley, president of the local NAACP branch. “We try to keep the dream alive.” After the march, there will a program at Pleasant Grove, “What would Dr. King Say About Bullying Today?”
Haley said bullying is a problem that elementary school students through high schoolers can face, and it is also seen in the workplace. If King were alive today and saw the bullying problem, Haley said he would probably ask, “How far have we really come?”"He would remind people of what he stood for, what he fought for and what he died for,” she said. “He would try to encourage people to get back on the right track. I think we’re getting lost.” There will also be a voter-registration drive at the church.
