Saturday, February 9, 2008 - 6:30am to 9:00am


Chavis Park, 505 Martin Luther King Blvd., Raleigh, NC

Plan now to gather with thousands -- perhaps tens of thousands -- of North Carolinians in support of a progressive agenda for the state. The second annual HKonJ -- Historic Thousands on Jones Street in Raleigh -- will be held Saturday, February 9 at Chavis Park, 505 Martin Luther King Blvd., Raleigh beginning at 11:30 a.m., with a march to the State Legislative Building planned for 12:30 p.m.

See the HKonJ site for more information, agenda, flyer, etc.

Last year I rode on the bus to HK on J with the Chapel Hill-Carrboro NAACP which was awesome because it would have been impossible for us to find each other among the thousands of participants. I've been trying to find out about buses this year and first I heard this:

There will be an naacp bus leaving at 9:30am from University Mall in Chapel Hill outside Dillards Dept. Store. Dillards faces Willow Drive off Estes Blvd.

Call Miriam Thompson for reservations: (919) 370-4114 or Lori Hoyt (919) 968-41114

But then I learned this:

I just talked to Lori Hoyt (her number was incorrect in that blurb I sent you and I didn't notice). She said the NAACP bus is full, but there are several other groups trying to organize carpooling or vans from the Dillards parking lot on Saturday, too.

Anyway, see you at U Mall!
