MARTIN LUTHER KING JR. DAY
Nonproﬁt group works to reclaim roadways
S. LOUIS — A walk down the six-mile city street named or the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. yields plenty o images that would sure-ly unsettle the civil rights leader: shuttered storeronts, open-air drug markets and a glut o pawn shops, quickie check-cashing providers and liquor stores.Te urban decay along Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Drive in St. Louis can be ound in other major American cities, rom Houston and Milwau-kee to the nation’s capital.“It’s a national prob-lem,” said Melvin White, a 46-year-old postal worker in St. Louis and ounder o a 3-year-old nonproﬁt group that is trying to restore King’s legacy on asphalt. “Dr. King would be turning over in his grave.”Nearly three decades into the observance o Monday’s ederal holiday, the continu-ing decline o the most vis-ible symbols o King’s work has White and others calling or a renewed commitment to the more than 900 streets nationwide named in the Atlanta native’s honor. Te eﬀort centers in St. Louis, where the small nonproﬁt is working to reclaim MLK roadways as a source o pride and inspiration, not disap-pointment over a dream de-railed.White’s goals are ambitious, his resources admittedly modest. A neighborhood park is planned across the street rom the group’s head-quarters. An urban agricul-ture project to encourage residents to eat healthy and grow their own ood has preliminary support rom nearby Washington Uni- versity, one o the country’s wealthiest private colleges. Above all, Beloved Streets o America wants to build the community rom the ashes o what was once a thriving retail corridor when White was a child.Te template can be ound just a mile away. Delmar Boulevard, which saw a sim-ilar decline, is now a vibrant retail corridor packed with restaurants, nightclubs, a renovated movie theater and a boutique hotel. Te renais-sance earned Delmar recog-nition in 2007 as one o “10 Great Streets in America” by the American Planning As-sociation.“In some ways we racial-ly proﬁle these streets,” said Derek Alderman, author o a 2007 study that ound a smaller disparity among MLK-named streets and other “main streets” than is popularly portrayed. “We need to move beyond those images and see what con-crete lives and realities are living on those streets.”More than 50 years afer King led his march on Wash-ington, communities large and small still debate wheth-er to rename local streets in his honor. In Harrisonburg, Va., city leaders recently agreed to rename a street or King over protests by some residents. A similar debate continues in High Point, N.C., where a King street proposal ﬁrst suggested two decades ago remains up in the air.
