Thousands of people are expected to join one of two marches Monday in Sacramento in honor of the late Martin Luther King Jr.
A march on the south side of the city will start about 9 a.m. at Sacramento City College, 3835 Freeport Blvd. It is expected to arrive about 11:30 a.m. at the Sacramento Convention Center, 1400 J St., which is hosting a diversity expo. Early risers can join the “extra mile,” which departs at 8:30 a.m. the Oak Park Community Center, 3425 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. Buses will be available to return marchers to their starting point.

The north march has a new route this year. A pre-march program begins at 7:45 and the procession starts at 9 a.m. at Grant High School, 1400 Grand Ave., and loops through North Sacramento before returning to a wellness expo at Grant.
