Sheryl Underwood, NAACP to Recreate 1963 March on Washington [VIDEO]

*Sheryl Underwood is joining with the NAACP and the Southern Christian Leadership Coalition to re-create the historic 1963 March on Washington.

“Everybody that was alive in 1963 and at that march, we’re working to find them and get them to be a part,” she said.

The re-creation will take place August 2020 at the Washington Monument, CBS reports.

Underwood said the mission of the coalition is to register voters ahead of the presidential election and celebrate the history and the social impact of the march.

“I think we can come together as a family to do some good in the neighborhood,” said Underwood. “We’re going to defend our democracy one vote at a time.”

Warren Ballentine of Sheryl Underwood Radio encourages people of all backgrounds to participate in the march.

“It’s not a love for one, it’s a love for all. It’ about calling everybody to the table to work as a family, showing love no matter what race, religion, your background, your economic position, this is about a day of 1963 coming together and having some love as Americans.”

The March on Washington was a political demonstration held in Washington, D.C., in 1963 by civil rights leaders to protest racial discrimination and to show support for civil rights legislation that was pending in Congress.

The march is credited with helping to pass the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

At the 50th anniversary march in 2013, President Barack Obama conferred a posthumous Presidential Medal of Freedom on civil rights activist Bayard Rustin and 15 others.
