Tri-Staters Re-Enact Civil Rights March at UE

It's a tradition in Evansville to re-enact the 1963 Civil Rights March on Washington.
It's a tradition in Evansville to re-enact the 1963 Civil Rights March on Washington. Organizers from the University of Evansville have been holding the march for more than 20 years.

Local and state politicians, several community leaders, and students marched along the streets near the UE campus. Some carried signs, while others walked in silence. But everyone knew the purpose.

Today wasn't just about race relations. Those who marched through the city say the purpose was also to bring attention to gay rights issues, poverty, and gender equality.
