47th anniversary of March on Washington starts at Dunbar – Aug 28

The 47th anniversary of the March on Washington will begin at historical Dunbar High School and will end at the Martin Luther King Memorial.   The march recognizes the ideals of the initial march headed by Martin Luther King.

From the National Action Network:

47 years ago, the March on Washington took place where Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered his I Have a Dream speech at the March on Washington. 47 years later, Rev. Al Sharpton and the National Action Network invites you to reclaim the dream.  We’ve made progress but our struggle still continues. Please join us and register for the historic Reclaim the Dream Rally and March on Saturday, August 28th in Washington DC at Dunbar High School at 11 am. National Action Network will mobilize progressive leaders, clergy, activists and “Dream Keepers” for a mass rally. There are conservative groups and tea party members that are holding rallies the same day at the Lincoln Memorial and we want to show the world that THE DREAM LIVES ON.

Our own Miles Holloman is working as a part of the National Action Network or organize for this event and seeks individuals who want to walk with us to keep the dream alive.  Contact me at bacadc@gmail.com if you want to meet up with us.

We will meet at Dunbar HIgh School at 11am. Please join us.

Thanks,

Caryn
