Who we are

Beloved Streets of America is implementing a comprehensive plan to reverse the urban decline and decay of the communities surrounding the streets named after Dr. Martin Luther King and provide a positive environment for growth and change.

What We Do

Our goal is to revitalize the St. Louis Martin Luther King Drive first, then mobilize our initiative in 16 additional cities over the next five years. We have developed a complete Program of Neighborhood Amenities and Site Improvements for the same.

Why Support Us

We are planning a park that will be dedicated to teaching about the Legacy of Dr. King where there can be speeches and rallies, food and music, and annual events to mobilize the community to spur on the additional planned transformations.
