"Marching for the purpose of commemorating and celebrating the work and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.” is main purpose of the New Braunfels MLK Association, Inc.
We celebrated our 4th annual march and ceremony on January 21, 2019. The weather was perfect; not too cold nor too hot. The marchers were enthusiastic. The good folks with Salvation Army provided some food and drink. Beautiful purple t-shirts were sold and worn. Yesenia McNett provided us song on the plaza and Pastor Higgins a prayer. Yesenia, the UTSA Gospel Choir and the Resurrection Baptist Church Men's Choir gave us uplifting songs. The highlight, everyone agreed, was the presentation of the full "I Have a Dream" speech by Col. (Chaplain) Ed Maney as Dr. King and Chevonne Franklin providing the narrative background.
