LA Dodger’s Matt Kemp is all about honoring the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. On January 19, Matt kicked off the official MLK parade as the 2013 Celebrity Grand Marshall.

Matt cruised through the city of Los Angeles with one of his biggest fans by his side, Judy Henderson, his mother. In efforts to pay respect to those who made this opportunity possible for him, Matt opted to wear number 42, the jersey of the late Jackie Robinson. Like a true sportsman and a man of the community, Matt chatted with fans, posed for fan photos, and cheered on the crowd with other Dodger Alumni.
