Al Sharpton Hosts New Black Panthers for ‘Redeem the Dream’ March, August 2000

In August 2000, Rev. Al Sharpton organized the "Redeem the Dream" march in Washington DC commemorating the 37th anniversary of Rev. Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream" speech. His rally included a lengthy address by New Black Panther leader Malik Zulu Shabazz filled with disturbing racism and calls to violence against whites.

"We have a black dream today of when we see caskets rolling in the black community, that we will see caskets rolling and funerals in the white community of our enemy as well today... we have a black dream."
