The brief program at Marshall Park will include poetry, song and prayer, followed by a processional to three nearby monuments, each a testament to the power of love over hate. The group will pause along the route at the Holocaust Memorial, the Martin Luther King Memorial and the memorial for Mohandas “Mahatma” Gandhi, all within a few blocks from the starting point. Participants are encouraged to leave flowers at the foot of each monument.
“We believe this will be a visible and moving tribute to love, unity, compassion and hope in Charlotte and a way for our community to say “no” to hate and divisiveness,” according to the press release.
