Durham's MLK Black History Parade 2013 (updated with more pictures)
This was my first trip into Durham since moving down here. I always say there's history all around us-- African American, American, Indian. This is one place where I really felt surrounded by history. All you have to do is travel downtown to "Black Wall Street" then rolling through NC Central's Campus.
I'll get to those topics soon. First I want to get to the parade. There's not much to say. There isn't that much information out there on who started it. It's only been going for 11 years, but you can tell the community really embraces it as a source of pride. Parades are always better when you know someone whom you can look to cheer on as they make their way down the route. This was still fun though. I guess this is a case when the pictures speak louder than words.
