Northern Orange Annual MLK March 2017

January 16, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am

The march will begin at 9 a.m. and is expected to last approximately one hour. Participants in the march will travel north on Churton Street from the Historic Orange County Courthouse on East King Street. The march will stop briefly, for prayer, at Dickerson Chapel African Methodist Episcopal Church located at the intersection of E. Queen and N. Churton Street. Marchers then will continue north on Churton Street to W. Union Street, where the march will conclude with a 10 a.m. service at Mt. Bright Baptist Church, located at 211 W. Union Street.


The Hillsborough Police Department will close Churton Street and the intersections between Margaret Lane and Union Street shortly before 9 a.m. They will conduct a rolling roadblock, opening each intersection after marchers have passed.  The police department will follow the same street closure/reopening procedure as the march travels on W. Union Street to Mt Bright Baptist Church.
