New London neighborhood group plans Black History Month walk on Saturday

New London — The Colman Street Neighborhood Alliance and friends on Saturday will host the first ever Black History Month Walk.

The hourlong walk begins at 1 p.m. at the corner of Colman Street and Jefferson Avenue and will proceed onto Colman Street, also known as Dr. Martin Luther King Boulevard.

The procession will stop in the open field past the Citgo gas station near Gordon's Yellow Front Package Store for a few brief speeches ranging in topics from gun violence to COVID-19 deaths. Free masks will be provided. All ages are welcome. Escorts will be available.

Parking is available at the New London High School, Bates Woods Park, Bennie Dover Jackson Middle School and surrounding roads and streets.

The walk will resume and head toward the corner of Colman and Bank streets. About 1:40 p.m., walkers will reverse direction and head back toward the start of the walk.
