San Antonio’s 28th Anniversary Commemorative Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. March united tens of thousands of San Antonians under one common cause— a dream. On the morning of January 19, participants and uniformed officers began their march at the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Academy and ended at Pittman-Sullivan Park.
The UTSA NAACP held a "die-in" on Dec. 10 next to the Sombrilla to protest recent grand jury decisions not to indict white police officers who fatally shot unarmed Black men. The deaths of Eric Garner and Mike Brown were among the high-profile cases mentioned by an NAACP student representative who told the crowd, "This isn't a race issue; it's a human issue."
