Thousands of demonstrators gathered on the National Mall to protest police and vigilante violence against black Americans. The event commemorated Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream" speech exactly 57 years ago today, when hundreds of thousands gathered for the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.
Hundreds of thousands of people in Louisiana are still without water and electricity, one day after Hurricane Laura roared through the Bayou State. Officials say basic services could be down for weeks in some parts of the Gulf Coast. The storm is now a tropical depression, threatening to bring flooding and tornadoes to Tennessee.
No decision today on whether accused shooter Kyle Rittenhouse should be returned to Wisconsin to face charges of killing two people during this week's unrest in Kenosha. Rittenhouse requested a four-week delay in his extradition hearing, which the Illinois judge agreed to.
President Donald Trump signed a full pardon for Alice Marie Johnson, who spent more than two decades behind bars for a non-violent drug offense before the president commuted her sentence in 2018. Johnson spoke about the power of redemption at the Republican National Convention Thursday night.
