Charles King, James Meredith and Valenica Robinson start walking

It’s a good thing the ACLU of Mississippi is providing legal support, because the walking caravan was stopped by the cops AGAIN yesterday. This time the designated police escort assumed the walkers wouldn’t be moving since it was raining. Like a little rain would stop our intrepid walkers! Nope, the caravan kept on trucking.

As they walked through Yazoo City (best town name ever?  yes), a group of high schoolers asked them to speak at a pep rally today. The Campaign to End AIDS crew said yes, of course.

Housing Works President and CEO Charles King will be joining the walkers today. He’ll be sure to wake the rest of the walkers up at 5 a.m. doing push-ups, as is his custom.
