“The community response is always great, we usually have 150 people in the march itself and maybe more at the courthouse for the program,” said NAACP member Bill Glover.

The march will begin at 11:30 a.m. at Martin Luther King Jr. Park and end at the Potter County Courthouse.

At Noon, there will be a short program at the courthouse.
