Call in to speak with the host
50 years ago today. Americans gathered in our nation's capital to speak as one voice, requesting peace, jobs and justice.
The problems facing Blacks in America had played itself out on streets across America, and finally in one peacefully orchestrated demonstration people headed to Washington DC by the thousands.
The message they carried was
freedom for all,
justice for all
Jobs for all.
By 1963, parts of America had been through turmoil for years, and things were not getting better then, but worse.
Blacks and Whites come together in peace to make their voices heard to people who were holding political seats of power in Washington DC. People were tired of fighting and people had decided giving up was not an option.
It's good to talk.
