"The March on Washington pushed open doors of opportunity that enabled me to walk through the halls of Skyway Elementary School as a principal, the halls of the State Capitol of Florida as a State senator, and now the halls of Congress as a United States representative. Fifty years later, we must continue the work of reversing discrimination to eliminate the opportunity gap that lingers.”
