Remembering King’s legacy in Glen Cove


For 40 years Glen Cove’s elected leaders, the community and faith leaders from across the North Shore gather for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day to participate in a symbolic march from the First Baptist Church of Glen Cove to Finley Middle School.
Glen Cove is one of two localities on Long Island that has offered consecutive and annual community programs in honor of King. The march serves to remember and honor the accomplishments of Martin Luther King Jr. for his impact in the Civil Rights Movement
This year’s presentation at the middle school featured poems, music and a performance from the high school’s drumline.
