SPECIAL EDITION: March on Washington 50th Anniversary issue

As recent rulings like the Supreme Court's decision to strike down Section 4 of the Voting Rights Act, and laws like the imbalanced "Stand Your Ground" prove, our work is far from over. It's 2013, and all of us should strive towards tackling inequality wherever it lurks, for that is the only way we can truly reach that mountaintop.

It's hard to believe that it's been 50 years since Dr. King's historic March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. On Aug. 24, the National Action Network and Martin Luther King III will be joined by others in a massive demonstration back where it all began in the nation's capital. Hundreds of thousands gathered together in 1963, and today, when we have serious issues still impacting the future of our country, all of us must convene as one yet again.

Worst of all, they are stealing the country’s hope and belief in democracy and the future of our children and of our country. It is time for them to go somewhere and not be heard from again; Buhari will end up in jail like Bashir of Sudan. Buhari has stolen the hopes of the youths in the country. Buhari has a reservation in the pits of hell.
