Hundreds march from Burlington to Graham for racial equality

Organizers called it 'A March For Justice.' The march included several Alamance County organizations and ended at the Graham Court Square.

Demonstrators marched from Burlington to Graham for racial equality Saturday. Demonstrators are calling for a confederate statue to come down. 

Permits from the Graham Police Department are no longer required to demonstrate and Saturday's March was one of the first since a federal judge placed a hold on those permits.
