At the recent 32nd annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Kingdom Parade in Los Angeles on January 16, 2017, the Henry Armstrong Foundation was on hand with a decorated float and many supporters for the event. The celebration is the largest of its kind in the United States of America honoring Dr. King.

Here are a few photo shots of the parade taken off the TV coverage that was shown live by KABC Channel 7. Please note the larger photo above is courtesy of Tiffany Lam from Montero On Boxing (thank you, Tiffany). It is a great photo of Edward and Kimberly Scott; Edward is the grandson of Henry Armstrong.
