Black News, African American News, Minority News, Civil Rights News, Discrimination, Racism, Racial Equality, Bias, Equality, Afro American NewsNEW YORK - Scores of black ministers and community leaders marched across the Brooklyn Bridge to New York's City Hall today to raise awareness about mounting gun violence.

The organizers emphasized this was not a protest, but a religious experience.

It is being called a Jericho march, a Biblical references to the breaking down of walls. Members of the New York City Police Department accompanied the marchers.

NYPD stats show 210 people were killed so far this year compared to 233 for the same period last year.

The leaders of today's march emphasized that this was a rally in support of love, not anger, in the hope prayers can guide policy.
