The University of Georgia NAACP and the UGA Office of Student Affairs Multicultural Services and Programs are organizing what's described as a peaceful vigil and march in honor of Michael Brown, who was shot by police in Ferguson, Missouri.
The president instructed Holder to set up regional meetings on building trust between law enforcement and the communities they serve in the wake of clashes between protesters and police in Ferguson, Missouri.
Thousands are expected to gather today for Michael Brown’s funeral at Friendly Temple Missionary Baptist Church in St. Louis. PBS NewsHour will live stream the event, which is scheduled to begin at 11 a.m. EDT. You can also watch the PBS Live Stream below.
Organizers say the march was meant to raise awareness of racial injustice across the United States. Unlike in Missouri, the protest in Savannah proceeded without incidents of violence or conflicts between protestors and police.
