Earlier tonight, I blogged about the
bizarre experience of listening to Canadian opera singers
perform an ode to the Lord Jesus all the while several hundred
people shut down a main Washington, D.C., thoroughfare to protest
gross racial disparities in the U.S. criminal justice system. Here
now, the photographic record of the day.
The demonstration began at 4 p.m. with fewer then 50 people at
the U.S. Department of Justice.
As night fell, the growing crowd made its way down
Constitution Avenue, where it went on to stage a series of
“die-ins” at various intersections in the vicinity of the White
Eventually the marchers wended their way up 14th Street, through
Chinatown, and to the steps of the courthouse at Judiciary Square.
From there, an organizer with a bullhorn announced they were going
to shut down Pennsylvania Avenue en route to the John A. Wilson
Building, home of the D.C. government.
When I finally headed for home around 9 p.m., the protesters
were still at it, having pledged to continue marching, shutting
down as many streets as possible in their quest for justice.
