Where were you on August 28, 1963?
That was the date of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, one of the largest political rallies for human rights in U.S. history. Next Wednesday marks 50 years since Martin Luther King, Jr. stood on a raised platform with others in front of the Lincoln Memorial and told the world about the dream he had.
It’s estimated that as many as 300,000 people were there, and I’m proud to say I was one of them. It was an amazing experience in my life that I’ll never forget.
So if you were old enough at the time to know and understand what was happening, where were you, what were you doing, what did (and do) you think about the event, and in what way were you affected emotionally?
