It is more than just a day off work.

The Madame Walker Theatre aims to help Hoosiers remember King’s accomplishments in a 90 minute celebration that is FREE to all Indianapolis people.

Start the day off at 11:00 am at the Indianapolis Urban League Building. Gather with friends and strangers as you enjoy light refreshment in anticipation of the annual mock march.  Join in the Fifth Annual Freedom Walk on the Avenue at noon.
