The Freedom Train is specially chartered by the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Association of Santa Clara

I didn’t know there were modern Freedom Trains. I only knew of the old events of 1947-1949 and 1975 – 1976. Freedom Train.org and Wikipedia for more info on those. They had one today, so people from Santa Clara area and stations along the way could join in the celebrations in San Francisco, for $5.

More info from Caltrans website, 1,600 people were transported, and this was the 23rd annual run. 

Why don’t we hear more about this kind of thing? True it wasn’t a National event, but for a National figure who’s life and achievements should be celebrated.
