The 1000 Mile March

Dr. King referred to the August 1966 march into Marquette Park and the other efforts of the Chicago Freedom Movement that summer as the “first step in a one thousand mile journey.” In many ways, that march, as well as the series of organizing efforts associated with the Movement, was about challenging a divided city and reclaiming the notion of home for families denied the basic human right to live freely in thriving communities.

The symbolic 1,000 Mile March took place on August 6, 2016, retracing a portion of the historic August 1966 march into Marquette Park, celebrating the triumphs of communities struggling for equity and amplifying their ongoing efforts.
