Pete Seeger’s Dream was to have a singing parade to honor MLK.
It’s a Civil Rights March where we are in the parade singing along.
We encourage you to carry positive posters, banners, and American flags. There will be cars
for anyone who would like to ride rather than walk.
We also invite you to a program honoring the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King following the Parade.
It will be put on by the Southern Dutchess Coalition.
It will be inside the Springfield Baptist Church starting at 11am.
