Members of the Teamsters National Black Caucus participated in Rev. Al Sharpton’s “Reclaim the Dream” Rally in Washington, D.C. on August 28 to commemorate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s famous “I Have A Dream” speech, held on the same day 47 years ago. At the rally, 600 TNBC members joined other civil and labor rights groups where they listened to speeches from community leaders, pastors, civil rights leaders and labor leaders, including TNBC chairman Al Mixon.
After the rally, participants marched from Dunbar High School to the building site of a memorial to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Sharpton personally requested that Teamsters lead the four-mile march. View all photos from this historical rally.
