On July 28, 1917, the NAACP held a protest in New York to put an end to lynching and racial inequalities. Over 10,000 black men, women, and children took the streets of Fifth Avenue with a silent march. The protesters marched behind a row of drummers. The only sound herd during the protest was drums.
