BounceTV has just announced an exciting collaboration.
We’ve just learned that the multi-platform entertainment network will be partnering with the NAACP in order to live stream the 2020 Virtual March on Washington.
The two-day event will take place on Thursday, August 27th and Friday, August 28th, 2020. This special celebration highlights the 57th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. delivering his infamous, “I Have A Dream” speech.
The 2020 Virtual March on Washington will include speakers and performances featuring Rev. William Barber II, Stacey Abrams, Congresswoman Brenda Lawrence, Mayor Steve Benjamin, Yusef Salaam and Tamika Mallory and performances by B.B. Winans, Lisa Ramey, the Alvin Ailey Dance Company, H.E.R, and Macy Gray.
In an official statement, Bounce General Manager Cheryle Harrison stated, “Bounce was founded to serve the African-American community with a focus on educating our viewers on issues that matter most to them. Our partnership with the NAACP and live streaming of the 2020 Virtual March on Washington will bring awareness to the policy changes needed to end police brutality and racial discrimination but with an urgent call-to-action to vote.”
Harrison added, “Bounce is committed to fighting systemic racism and racial injustice and the launch of our Your Vote, Your Voice campaign provides actionable information for our viewers, from registering to volunteering. Black voices need to be heard and counted in this upcoming election; this is not the time to be silent.”
