Event: Tha Iconic 42mile Walk for Love, Peace, & Unity in Remembrance of Jackie Roosevelt Robinson
Date: January 31st, 2015

Jackie Robinson's legacy continues to live on. Especially for local artists on Pasadena's music scene. On Saturday January 31st, 2015, 3 local artists walked 42 miles in remembrance of Jackie Robinson on what would've been his 96th birthday. The walk was to demonstrate qualities that reflected Robinson's character: love, peace, & unity. The artists who walked were DOMINANCE, Jangles, & Mistah Wilson. But it was more than just a walk on Jackie Robinson's birthday, it was also the 150th day of abolished slavery in America.

The walk was an effort to advance the Robinson Blvd and to demonstrate positive ways to TAKE ACTION and make a difference. A crew of 5 assembled at Gladstone Donuts on the Southeast corner of Lake & Washington. Jangles, who came all the way from Van Nuys to participate, DOMINANCE, Bing Bing, Otto Evans, & Francisco Reyes were the walkers. After taking the photo together, they began walking East to begin the journey on Altadena Dr. & Washington Blvd. The crew started walking at 1:00a and finished the walk at 6:30p that day. The artists took photos along the way but was more concerned about completing the walk because it was such a long distance.

“No formalities. No pretending. No profit margins needed,” says Mistah Wilson after the walk. “I hope this walk inspires and empowers anyone who comes across it. We did the best we can.”
