For the CBC, the March on Washington Is a Call to Action
Rep. John Lewis (Georgia)
"When I look back on Aug. 28, 1963, the day of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, I see it as one of this nation’s finest hours. The American people pushed and pulled, they struggled, suffered, and some even died, to demonstrate their desire to see a more fair, more just society. Their effort and their commitment ushered in a spirit of bipartisanship, collaboration and meaningful change into the Congress."
