UIS community joins in MLK celebration downtown

The Ministerial Alliance of Springfield’s annual Martin Luther King Jr. observance service, held at Union Baptist Church, became the destination for the University of Illinois Springfield’s march in honor of King this year.

The march began at Second Street and Capitol Avenue, where UIS' Voices in Praise Choir performed in front of a statue of Martin Luther King Jr. before about 40 people walked toward Union Baptist Church, where the annual service was held.

The march and UIS' involvement in the celebration was featured in a January 19, 2010, article in the State Journal-Register.
