Monday: Freedom Train commemorates civil rights march

For nearly 30 years, the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Association of Santa Clara Valley has commemorated the historic 1965 civil rights march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama, by chartering a special Caltrain run, and the association will uphold its annual tradition this year.

On Monday, Jan. 20, the "Freedom Train" leaves the San Jose Diridon station at 10 a.m. and arrives in San Francisco an hour later. Event tickets will be accepted on southbound trains departing San Francisco after 1 p.m. that day.

Tickets for the "Freedom Train" must be purchased from the association, available at to scvmlk.org, presmlkscv@yahoo.com or 408-861-5323.
