“The March on Washington was a watershed event in American history, revolutionizing how we talk about race in America and setting in motion historic civil rights legislation. As we honor the memory of the march on this 50th anniversary and celebrate all that our country has achieved since then, we must also confront the racism that remains pervasive in our society today.”
