Another event is planned for Tuesday evening in Atlanta, where organizers are conducting a rally on the steps of the Georgia State capitol. The 5 p.m. gathering, which is billed as a “Remember and Act” rally, is being organized by a wide number of groups, including the student government organizations of Morehouse, Spelman and Clark Atlanta University. Other groups include the Georgia Federation of Teachers and the local chapter of the Communications Workers of America.

A rally was held in the Washington, D.C., suburb of Lanham, Maryland, this past weekend. The event, which was called “We Won’t Let You Fall,” was a tribute “to the life and legacy of Trayvon Martin,” and was held at the Mount Calvary Baptist Church...

It’s simultaneously fascinating and appalling to watch leftists attempt to create heroes out of the most unfit candidates imaginable, living or dead.
