NPR Talks to 6 Marchers from the 1963 March On Washington
We’re very thanks to the folks at NPR and to A. Peter Bailey, Courtland Cox, Sondra Hassan, Todd Endo, Daniel Serwer, and Edith Lee-Payne for sharing their experiences and memories. From NPR on YouTube:
In 1963, hundreds of thousands of demonstrators gathered in Washington, D.C. for the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. We talked to six marchers about what they remember from that day and how they feel, 57 years later, about the nationwide Black Lives Matter protests in the wake of George Floyd’s killing.
