"I am a direct product of the civil rights movement and a grateful beneficiary. I was a child at the time, but recognized that the 1963 march was a seminal moment in the fight for racial, social, and economic justice for all. This 50th anniversary is an opportunity to embrace Dr. King’s message of equality and justice by continuing that fight in new ways.”
