    Dr. White: I was at the march with Al Sharpton. I was overcome with the number of people who were at the rally and march. I am not even sure if Rev. Al is aware of the vast number of people who were in the parade because he was leading the parade. Rev. Al had given instructions for us to walk four abreast. In my estimation of the crowd there was no less than one hundred thousand people. if we had walked four abreast, it would have taken us far over into the night to get to the site where the memorial is being built.The crowd was actually walking not four abreast, but spread across the whole wide street. The crowd was so huge that by the time Martin III speech ended and we were leaving, people who were at the end were just arriving. I was very moved at the turn out. I cannot say how many people were at Glen Beck’s rally, I only saw some of them as we were coming in the capitol area. I never saw them collectively as I saw us collectively,
