Many ask why keep marching? Some proclaim nothing or very little has changed. Education and awareness is everything. People must be reminded of the specific tenet of marching. It is a non-violent tool to bring awareness to issues. It is after a march that a call to action is made for public engagement and part of a democracy is the process never stops.
These are a few shots from the 60th anniversary of the 1963 March on Washington, which was commemorated Saturday, August 26th. It had many sponsors but was primarily organized by National Action Network and supported by the King family. Thousands from around the nation came to the Lincoln memorial where a hosts of speakers presented their appeal. It was followed by a march to the MLK memorial as a stage was set up adjacent the gift shop.
