King stayed at the Clara White Mission on a trip to Jacksonville.

As the nation celebrates the legacy of Martin Luther King Junior this week, do you know about his connections to Jacksonville?

Kelsi Hasden shared them with WJCT News Director Jessica Palombo in this week’s Jaxson on WJCT.

The sites are:

  • The Clara White Mission
  • Mt. Ararat Baptist Church 
  • Isadore Singleton residence
  • Frank Hampton residence
  • Federal Courthouse

For addresses and more details about the sites, visit The Jaxson.

And if you like The Jaxson, join WJCT on Thursday, Jan. 24, for an event called The Jaxson Presents: Getting There in Jacksonville.  It’s a panel discussion of how our changing city is confronting its transportation future, and it’s free to attend.

Getting There In Jacksonville starts with networking and hors d’oeuvres at 6 p.m.
