On Saturday, May 8, at 11:00 a.m., a clergy march will be held to demand truth, transparency and accountability in the death of Andrew Brown Jr., an unarmed Black man who was killed April 21 by Pasquotank County deputies serving a warrant in Elizabeth City.

The march will be followed by a public rally and a news conference at 11:30 a.m.

Bishop William J. Barber II, president of Repairers of the Breach, co-chair of the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival former moderator with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), and Rev. Dr. T. Anthony Spearman, an elder with the AME Zion Church and former president of the N.C. Council of Churches, will lead a march of interfaith and interdenominational clergy, wearing vestments of their faith traditions.

Other speakers include Rev. Jennifer Copeland, executive director of the N.C. Council of Churches; Rev. Javan Leach, pastor of Mt. Lebanon AME Zion Church in Elizabeth City; Rev. Greg Drumwright, organizer of Justice 4 the Next Generation and Rev. Hanna Broome, a presiding elder in the AME Zion Church. An attorney for the family, Harry Daniels, also will participate.

Clergy members will meet at 10:30 a.m. at 306 N. Road St., Elizabeth City, in front of the Boys and Girls Club, which also is the former Elizabeth City Middle School, on the corner of North Road Street and Elizabeth Street / Hwy 158 West. Parking is available in the lot behind the Boys and Girls Club. They will march to the Pasquotank County Courthouse. Also online at www.breachrepairers.org/ andrewbrown

Andrew Brown Jr. was unarmed when he was shot in the back of his head by officers serving a warrant, which is not a license to kill. The legal system must release the full videos from the officers’ body cameras to the public and the family.

We also demand an independent prosecutor; federal and state laws that call for police accountability and police reform; and a federal pattern and practices investigation of law enforcement in Pasquotank County, along with any counties connected to the killing of Andrew Brown Jr.
