FRIDAY, MARCH 22, 1968

9:00 A.M.

From Clayborn Temple A.M.E. Church

We ask you to stay away from work or school and walk with more than 10,000 people who want Memphis once and for all to learn that it must be a city for all people. A man is a man. God requires that a man be treated like a man.

Memphis must do so in work, play, education, housing, by the police and in all other ways the rights of each man must be upheld. This will be a march of dignity. The only force we will use is soul-force which is peaceful, loving, courageous, yet militant.


1. Come to the church from Vance Street only.
2. THE ROUTE: Hernando to Beale
