MLK celebration parade to be held Monday in downtown Charleston

Martin Luther King Jr. Day Activities

By Friday night, the city denied the appeal as parade organizers "still had not fulfilled the necessary steps to obtain a special events permit", said Jay Warren, a city spokesman.

Information about related MLK Day events in Arlington that will continue can be found online at.

The YWCA of Greater Charleston will continue its celebration of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. with its annual parade on Monday, January 15. Abbott's attendance also met opposition from the Arlington chapter of the NAACP, which celebrated Thursday's cancellation of the parade.

"What they've done has no use for us trying to build bridges to solve the problems that our communities are facing", Tatum said.

Representatives with Toyota and the Cowboys couldn't be reached for comment late Thursday.

Simmons said she was frustrated that people kept confusing NAACP's involvement with the parade despite the organization explicitly stating they were not involved with the event in their statement.

However, she said comments from her friend past year blaming the devil for people being transgender "put her over the edge". And she suggested that some players would feel more strongly if another group was targeted by Court.

If the organizers tried to have the event anyway, they wouldn't have bathrooms or seating, he said. "As we review his career and public service, it is fair to say that Greg Abbott has done more to damage and undermine African-American and Latino civil and voter rights, educational opportunities and economic empowerment than any other modern-day Texas governor". Texas has appealed to the Supreme Court.

"Arlington is a city that is certainly used to special events, but this is a very tight timeline", Warren said.

"You don't extend an invitation to everyone and when some of them show up, someone not involved in the process at all decides to shut the whole thing down", Tatum said.

The Arlington NAACP had the support of the local LULAC council and the Texas AFL-CIO labor group and had threatened a protest, Simmons said.

Barbee said there are bands, floats, and guests, including Martin Luther King Jr.'s son, who were planning to attend.
