It’s been a year since the fatal “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Va. where White Nationalists and counter-protesters violently clashed. On Sunday, organizers of that rally will hold an anniversary demonstration in Washington, D.C. and thousands of counter protesters led by groups like Black Lives Matter are planning to meet them. Newsy's Kellan Howell sat down with Makia Green, one of the organizers from the Washington, D.C. chapter of Black Lives Matter to talk about how they are planning to confront white nationalists.
