Salisbury-Rowan NAACP plans bus trip for Winston-Salem march
The Salisbury-Rowan NAACP on Monday will sponsor a bus trip to Winston-Salem as part of a Moral Monday Movement march.
The march occurs on the same day as the start of a federal trial — NAACP vs. McCrory — concerning voter identification in North Carolina. The lawsuit concerns a law signed in 2013 that required all voters registered in North Carolina to have government-issued photo identification.
Salisbury-Rowan NAACP will meet at Walmart on Arlington Street at 2:30 p.m. on Monday and leave from the store at 3 p.m. Bus seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis. The Salisbury-Rowan NAACP requests donations to offset costs of the bus trip.
The march route is 10.5 blocks long — a circle beginning and ending at Corpening Plaza — and starts at 5 p.m. Salisbury-Rowan NAACP recommends wearing comfortable walking shoes and bringing water for the march.
Music, cultural performances and march instructions will start at 4 p.m., according to the North Carolina NAACP.
