Takin’ It to the Streets
Takin’ It to the Streets is an urban international festival that leverages artistic expression and community organizing to radically reimagine the world and our communities as they could be. This year’s ‘Streets festival is a component of the broader MLK Living Memorial Project, an effort to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s 1966 march into Marquette Park with the construction of Chicago’s first permanent memorial to Dr. King and a series of associated legacy projects. The 1000 Mile March will lead into Marquette Park that morning and will kick off the festival that afternoon.
