Several Tangipahoa Parish Youth Ambassadors will join citizens from across this country to converge upon our nation's capital to commemorate and celebrated the historic March on Washington that occurred 50 years ago on August 28, 1963.

Most of the Ambassadors parents weren't born at the time of  Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. most profound speech " I Have A Dream' in 1963. The Youth Ambassadors have been invited by The Center for Civil and Human Rights Law, Attorney Van Henri White to participate on a youth panel to discuss their views on civil rights and peonage. 

The Youth Ambassadors along with other summer campers took a National Civil Rights Tour to the National Civil Rights Musuem,  the Slaven House Museum and the Mississippi Delta to get a first hand lesson on history and how the civil rights movement affect their lives today.

Please join Host Antoinette Harrell and her special guest Bobby J. Ginn for this upcoming discussion.
