From time to time, this site will include links to coverage of MLKs, as appropriate. The hope is that this site will also include original coverage and writing and interviews and essays. If you have an interest in getting involved, write to walker AT robwalker DOT net.
Here’s a brief roundup of some of the previous coverage that I’m aware of.
The blog MLK In Motion documents changes on the MLK in Portland, OR.
A book called Along Martin Luther King was published a few years ago. It grew out of a series by Newhouse News. Here is a link to an article about the writer and photographer; it includes links to the installments of their original newspaper series, published in 2002.
Here is a link to an April 3, 2005 San Francisco Chronicle article about MLKs by Keli Dailey, who photographed on many MLKs in 2004 and 2005. Here is a link to a related multimedia piece featuring Dailey’s images.
Here is a link to a 1998 Seattle Times series about MLK streets and boulevards and avenues in Seattle; Little Rock; Selma; Albequerque; Phoenix; and Denver.
In 2003, the Times Discovery Channel aired a documentary called MLK Boulevard, which I have seen, but which I can’t find a good link for.
