Young people playing significant part in the 50th anniversary March on #Washington


Young people are tirelessly working towards making the 50th anniversary March a success. Even of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. was also just 26 when he staged the Montgomery Bus Boycott. It was only because of these spirited young people that a sea of people gathered at the Lincoln Centre on Saturday to show their solidarity with the cause.

The idea of Washington March was first initiated by jobs and justice rights advocates like Philip Randolph and Bayard Rustin in 1963
