IMG_4324Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network spearheaded the “Justice For Trayvon Martin” 100 City Vigil, which took place in more than 100 cities across the United States on Saturday, July 20th.  The Washington DC rally was attended by a predominately black crowd with noticeable representation from other races.  Speakers at the vigil included national radio talkshow host Joe Madison, comedian and activist Dick Gregory, NAN DC Bureau Chief Janaye Ingram, Rev. Ronald E. Braxton of Metropolitan AME Church, and Chair of the Maryland Black Caucus Aisha Braveboy.  The sweltering heat did not stop hundreds of attendees from gatehering outside the US District Court to call for justice for slain Florida teen Trayvon Martin.  Other themes included voting rights, and repealing the Stand Your Ground Law, and upward mobility for African Americans.
