The Root will recognize the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom with a full-day digital forum on Twitter, dedicated to today's most pressing civil rights issues. Experts, activists and celebrities will lead the global Twitter community in a virtual march, highlighting a variety of topics -- including criminal justice, education and immigration -- in a series of hourlong segments leading up to President Barack Obama's speech at the Lincoln Memorial.
The March on Twitter, which will occur from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. EDT and feature informative discussions and debate on each key issue, will stream live at The Root.
