Nearly 60 years after the March on Washington, civil rights activists will gather in D.C.and virtually this week for the 2020 March on Washington, also called the “Get Off Our Necks” Commitment March

News4 aired a special broadcast Thursday called “Inequality in America: A Call to Action."

We spoke with Rev. Al Sharpton and Martin Luther King III. We also heard from a D.C. man who marched in the Aug. 28, 1963, March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, and a local mother who lost her son to gun violence. She spoke about what the march means to her and other mothers of victims.

D.C. is gearing up to host the Commitment March on Friday. News4 Transportation Reporter Adam Tuss reports the closures that will be in place, and what to expect when you're at the event itself.
