WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- More than 100 people gathered to march in honor of voting rights Sunday in Winston-Salem.

The silent march started at the Forsyth County Board of Elections on North Chestnut Street and headed toward 4th Street and Liberty.

Organizers said the march symbolized a 1965 event where more than 500 people took part in a silent march for voting rights.

Many years later, and participants said the same vision continues to live on today.
