The Oklahoma NAACP and other community leaders will host a Community Unity news conference at 4 p.m. Saturday, November 29. The gathering will take place at All Souls Unitarian Church at 2952 South Peoria.

"We are coming together to send a message to the people that the Tulsa community works together," said Rebecca Marks-Jimerson of the Martin Luther King Commemoration Society.

"We break bread together beyond racial, religious, ethnic, gender, sexual orientation, cultural and socio-economic distinctions."

Mayor Dewey Bartlett will be speaking at the event. Pleas Thompson, the NAACP state vice president and president of the MLK Commemoration Society is convening the gathering, a news release states.

The release states the event is not being held to question the grand jury's decision not to indict a Ferguson, Missouri officer in the shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown.

The Oklahoma NAACP is taking part in a "Journey for Justice" march Saturday in Oklahoma City. The march is to start at 1 p.m. at the corner of NE 23rd and Martin Luther King Drive and end at the Governor's Mansion.

"This will be a peaceful protest," said Anthony R. Douglas, President of the Oklahoma NAACP.

"We're inviting the students and anybody with a musical instrument to come out and join us on this march. We're not just making a march of chanting; we're making a march of unity."
