On January 20, 1986, the first nationwide celebrations took place in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Junior, nearly 20 years after his assassination at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, Tennessee. This year on the 35th annual celebration of Dr. King, the Colorado Poor People’s Campaign hosted a rally before the city’s official festivities begin to highlight how they believe “the legacy of Dr. King has been co-opted by capitalism and corporatism.”Other groups who co-hosted the rally are Denver Homeless Out Loud, Party for Socialism and Liberation, and Black Lives Matter 5280.
