Voice of Trees (Washington, DC)

room 1 ECHOES

Washington, District of Columbia, United States

Like in August 28, 1963, at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC.

Thousands of people gathered in Washington DC for the event that commemorated the 1963 civil rights March on Washington and in protest at police violence.

Called the Commitment March: Get Your Knee Off Our Necks - a reference to the death of George Floyd, who died in May after a policeman knelt on his neck for several minutes - it follows renewed protests over the police shooting of Jacob Blake.
