The anniversary of the murder of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King was celebrated with a protest. Black groups, churches, and community activists from Chicago, Philadelphia, Detroit, New York, New Jersey, Delaware, Utah, Colorado, and Pittsburgh came together to protest at the NAACP national headquarters in Baltimore, Maryland. The protest was tremendous, exciting, and very successful. The protest was well covered by the media.
NAACP President Ben Jealous refused to respond to reporters about the protest against the civil rights organization (held on the anniversary of MLK's assassination) during which protesters called the organization a sold-out annex of the Democratic Party that is opposed to the interests of African Americans.
