The journey for justice never ends.

Back in June, Cornell Brooks and the NAACP announced they would be embarking on a 860-mile march from Selma, Alabama to Washington DC in an effort to protect and fight for our civil liberties.

Led by NAACP President and CEO Cornell William Brooks, America’s Journey for Justice – a historic 860-mile march from Selma, Alabama to Washington, DC – will mobilize activists and advance a focused national policy agenda that protects the right of every American to a fair criminal justice system, uncorrupted and unfettered access to the ballot box, sustainable jobs with a living wage, and equitable public education. America’s Journey for Justice will unite partners from the social justice, youth activism, civil rights, democracy reform, religious, not-for-profit, labor, corporate, and environmental communities to call for justice for all Americans under the unifying theme “Our Lives, Our Votes, Our Jobs, Our Schools Matter.

The march kicks off in Selma, Alabama on August 1, 2015. Here are the following dates by state:

Georgia: August 7

South Carolina: August 20

North Carolina: August 26

Virginia: September 3

Washington, D.C.: September 16

  1. what they really should do is march their asse* to school and get an education then march their asse* to look for a that would actually accomplish something and lower the crime rate.and while they are at it I hope they by-pass north Carolina.

      What they should do is ignore you and continue their fight against the double standard, injustice and the rights for all. I know this is exactly what they are doing, you just don’t know it!

    LOL…still marchin’ and sangin’; keep it up… keep them deaf, dumb and blind and waiting to overcome. True sslvation comes in education.

      Yeah, that’s why you and people like you are witnessing the first Afro American president. Keep thinking like this and watch what us “deaf, dumb, blind and waiting to overcome” people do to rock your world. Education has always been on our agenda and its just another step for us to “overcome!”

        You are a fcking fool, do you know that? If every black voter voted for the president it would not have been enough… the NAACP didn’t have anything to do with it. Further, black folk are no better off today than 10 yrs ago.
