LOS ANGELES – Mayor Villaraigosa today issued the following statement regarding the passing of Larry Grant:

 

“Today, Los Angeles mourns the passing of Larry Grant, the founder of the Los Angeles Kingdom Day Parade.

 

As the founder of the Kingdom Day Parade, Mr. Grant ensured the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. would resonate to all those touched by the fight for equality and has been celebrated by all Angelenos for 27 years.

 

He is a gem to our community that will sincerely be missed.  He had a true heart of service, and this immeasurable drive was seen through his many remarkable life achievements. 

 

His contributions will forever live on in our memories and will continue to prevail through the legacy of the Kingdom Day Parade.

 

My thoughts and prayers are with Mr. Grant’s friends and family at this difficult time.”
