50th Anniversary of the March on Washington, DC

March on Washington

Happy Friday, All! And you know that!  T.G.I.F.!
Keeping it short and sweet today because there is not much else one can say in regards to the fact that this weekend, officially the 28th of August, commemorates the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington, DC!
The lives of many Americans, in particular African Americans, have been changed by the events of the Civil Rights Movement culminating in this March on Washington.  We not only have an African American president serving his second term in the White House, but there have been many challenges to the post racial America ….
 While we have made much progress as a nation, there is still a lot of work that we need to do.  In honor of the anniversary of the March on Washington, DC, may we consider continuing moving FORWARD!  Keep Dr. King’s dream alive!
Peace,
John I. CookEmoji, Director
