Monday is Martin Luther King Day. In honor of the slain civil rights leader, Americans – including in Milwaukee will celebrate his life and teachings.
One event here will feature a rally at a central city church, followed by a march to the King statue on Martin Luther King Drive. Local performance artists will take part. We caught up with one of them as he prepared.
