Today, of course, is Martin Luther King Jr. Day. It seems every American city of any decent size (and minority population) has a street named after him.

Writer Rob Walker has a blog featuring pictures of MLK Boulevards around the nation.

We decided to do our part.

Photographer Dawn McGee traveled the street and shot her impressions. She saw an auto accident and the resulting fight, but maybe that's appropriate, for as Chris Rock once said, "You know what's sad? Martin Luther King stood for nonviolence. And I don't care where you are in America, if you're on Martin Luther King Boulevard, there's some violence going down."

MLK Boulevard in Houston runs from the University of Houston south, through MacGregor Park and down to Orem. Click here for our slideshow.
