Dr. Boyce Note: Why We Should All March on Washington on August 28th

by Dr. Boyce Watkins
I just got off the phone with Rev. Al Sharpton's field director.  We are planning a march on Washington on August 27th for the unveiling of the King Memorial on the Potomac.  The 28th is when President Obama will unveil the monument.  Here is why this event is both outstanding and important: 

1) It is the 48th anniversary of Dr. King's March on Washington
2) It is the only monument being created for an American who was not the President of the United States
3) It is the first monument being dedicated to an African American
4) It will be the last monument created on the Potomac, since there is no more room for any others. 

I hope you will make the time to travel for this event.  I am personally very excited.
