NAACP March Planned for Monday

By  | 

The local NAACP will be holding a "Walk for Justice" on Monday to protest the deaths of Trayvon Martin and James Anderson.

You may recall that protestors gathered in Jackson last month to march in support of Martin, who was allegedly shot by neighborhood watch leader George Zimmerman in Sanford, FL. Anderson is the black man who was run over and killed by a white teenager in Jackson last year.

Monday's NAACP "Walk for Justice" gets underway at 6:30 at Bonita Lakes Park in Meridian. If there is bad weather, the event will be held on Wednesday.
