A marade is a mixture of a march and a traditional parade walked in celebration of an event or focus, in this case to preserve the legacy and dedication of civil rights activists during Black History Month.
Get involved and inspire your friends and family! Bring the spirit of unity and strength that our forefathers demonstrated into your community by organizing a marade with your friends and family.
Simple Steps to organize a marade:
- Establish a time and route: A visible location is great to bring awareness. Provide maps to your participants so no one gets lost.
- Get the word out: Invite everyone you know! Spread the word on your Facebook and Twitter pages.
- Come prepared to march: Songs, water, signs, or T-shirts are a great way to show people why you are marching.
