Residents of Lincoln Homes watch as marchers in the Stop the Funeral Unity Prayer Walk pass by early Saturday morning. An estimated 150 participated in the third annual event, which orignated at First African Baptist Church and traveled through the neighborhood to raise awareness about the need to eradicate drugs and gangs in the city.
The Rev. Dr. William Barber, center, co-convener of Stop the Funeral and state NAACP president, holds a banner during the Unity Prayer Walk. A hearse provided by McIntyre Funeral Home went ahead of the walkers.
