Reflections on National Action to Realize the Dream
I have been reflecting on the importance of the National Action to Realize the Dream march on August 24, 2013, in Washington, D.C. It was a huge, very diverse march with people coming from all over the country to be part of a historic event.
Why does it feel that while the movement is still alive, the energy and vision are missing?
Arnie Alpert's op-ed on the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington appeared in the Concord Monitor, NH Union Leader, Nashua Telegraph, and Fosters Daily Democrat in the days around the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.
This Aug. 24 at the National Action to Realize the Dream on the anniversary of the original 1963 March on Washington, MaChere Cohen, her two daughters, and five of her grandchildren will be on the bus going from Pittsburgh to Washington.
