Rally remembering Black people killed by police planned for Lincoln Memorial

Fifty-seven years to the day after Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his soaring “I Have A Dream” speech on the Mall before hundreds of thousands, his oldest son will join civil rights leaders and the families of black men and women slain by police for a rally on the Lincoln Memorial steps.


Details of the Aug. 28 rally for criminal justice revisions — the “Get Your Knee Off Our Necks” march — have begun to crystallize in recent days as the Rev. Al Sharpton announced a lineup of speakers and the NAACP unveiled plans Monday to supplement the protest with three days of digital programming meant to reach those unable to attend the march.
