Juneteenth Day March Calling for Removal of Confederate Statue

On Saturday hundreds marched on Juneteenth Day calling for the removal of the Confederate Statue "The Talbot Boys" from the courthouse lawn in Easton. Delmarva Public Media's Don Rush reports that while they celebrate such symbolic achievement as a holiday more substantive issues such as voting rights legislation languish in the Senate.
