Hundreds of African-American men gathered last night to rally against the tide of violence, drug use and absent fathers plaguing Annapolis’ black community.
With a good number of women and children at their sides, the men pledged to do their part to improve the greater Annapolis community.

The brainchild of local businessman Derek Matthews, the rally was held in the sanctuary of the First Community Christian Church just north of Annapolis.
