Ludacris Will Headline the "March on Atlanta" Concert and Rally



Tomorrow, Atlanta will celebrate the 58th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s March on Washington.


On Saturday, August 28th, in partnership with March On, SEIU, National Action Network, the Drum Major Institute, and more, Grammy Award-winning actor and rapper, Ludacris, will headline the 58th anniversary of the historic March on Washington. The rally and concert will take place at Atlanta’s Centennial Olympic Park beginning at 11:00 am, however, the actual march will start at the historic Ebenezer Baptist Church. Recently, Ludacris partnered with IWillVote.com to write “Get Out and Vote,” which is an anthem to encourage Georgians to participate in the Georgia runoff elections. This collaboration happened through his educational children’s platform KidNation.




Ludacris stated, "Exercising our right to vote is fundamental to our democracy, and when people make it harder to vote, we stand up," said Ludacris. "I look forward to honoring the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King as I march with people in Atlanta on August 28th."

A line up like no other will be speaking and performing in support of voting rights and voter registration including, Congresswoman Nikema Williams, Ben Jealous who was a former NAACP President, Dr. Bernice King, Chris Rey who is the current Phi Beta Sigma International President and CEO, Shirley Franklin who was one of Atlanta’s former Mayors, and Rev. Dr. Gerald Durley. This day will be a moment to remember and it’s something that not only will be happening in Atlanta. Other marches will take place in Houston, Miami, Phoenix, Washington, D.C., and in more than 40 other cities around the country on August 28th as well.
