Update January 17: Coverage abounds of the parade and Rev. Jesse Jackson's 'peace and equality' rally.
First reporting: Martin Luther King, Jr. day is being observed on Monday, January 16, with the most visible being the annual downtown Charleston parade.
The annual parade is at 11 a.m. starting at Burke High School off Fishburne Street and winding downAshley Avenue, to Sumter Street and down King Street and exiting on Calhoun Street towards the aquarium.
However many other events and ceremonies abound throughout the weekend and on Monday (including a rally by Rev. Jesse Jackson), for a round-up I'll point you to The Post and Courier.
