“With the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington, it is important to recognize the progress we have made toward achieving equality since 1968. Even so, recent events serve as stark reminders that the struggle continues in realizing true equality of opportunity and treatment under the law in this country. Nevertheless, we shall continue to overcome, now and forever.”
