As the 50th anniversary of the historic March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom is being commemorated around the country this week, we continue our special coverage of the march with a look at the struggles facing young people today – how are they drawing connections with the struggles of their elders? What progress do they see and how far is there to go?
One of the principle organizers of the march was civil rights leader A. Philip Randolph, who at the time was an organizer with the AFL-CIO and the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters.
Joining us now from the A. Philip Randolph Institute is Biko Mandela Gray, a youth leader who was present at the major 50th anniversary commemoration on Saturday in Washington DC.
GUEST: Biko Mandela, Youth Leader with the A. Philip Randolph Institute
