Reverend Kimber named to national post
Rev. Al Sharpton of the National Action Network has appointed Rev. Dr. Boise Kimber as the National Coordinator for the “We Shall Not Be Moved” March in Washington DC on January 14, 2017.
The march will announce to President-Elect Donald Trump and put Congress on notice that protecting the civil rights of citizens, the voting rights of Americans who have been excluded, providing health care for all people, and equal opportunity for realizing the American Dream should be priorities of this government regardless of political affiliations.
“I’m honored to have been selected for a leadership role with this national march,” stated Rev. Kimber. “With this change in government leadership it is important that we continue to strive to make Dr. Martin Luther King’s dream a reality, as well as preserving the legacy of President Obama.”
During and after the recent presidential election, media outlets have been reporting an uptick in racial attacks and harassment throughout the country. This march is a response to the newly energized racist elements, “I am looking forward to uniting with other likeminded brothers and sisters to say that America can and should do better,” said Kimber.
