Here's the march now.
Thursday afternoon, Chappelle-Nadal was back at the scene of the protests on the sidewalks of the burned-down QuikTrip, preparing to appear on MSNBC, which has been covering the news in Ferguson extensively. She repeated her criticisms of Nixon, particularly for not coming down to the site of the protests, but was somewhat pleased by some of the day's developments.
"They finally did what they were supposed to do, which is not have a — what do you call that? — a military state in a bedroom community," Chappelle-Nadal told The Times. "The world had to see the violent acts of these police officers for us to get the freedom of expression and freedom of assembly."
The events have been organized on Twitter by the hashtag #NMOS14, which stands for “National Moment of Silence.” To identify each other and show solidarity, participants have been told to wear a red ribbon, cloth or bandana on their right arm at the vigils.
In St. Louis, the vigil will be held at the Gateway Arch. In Los Angeles, a vigil will be held in Leimart Plaza Park, according to the event’s Facebook page.
