"I think it’s important that during this moment, we recommit ourselves to addressing the issues that disproportionately plague African-American communities, such as high unemployment, equal voting rights and the access to quality and affordable education. I hope that the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington reminds us to continue moving forward in our struggle for justice and equality."
