More than 200 black men and representatives of African-American organizations and faith groups are endorsing Black Male Solidarity Day, an event calling for the economic, political, spiritual and educational uplift of the black community.
It will begin at 10 a.m. tomorrow at the City-County Building, Downtown. A march to Freedom Corner, Hill District, will follow, with a rally to kick off there at 11:30 a.m.
Organizers include the Community Empowerment Association in Homewood and the Kingsley Association in East Liberty.
The march has four goals: halting community violence, uniting black men to bring positive change, using unity to address the issues and being a force for economic and social development.
