Many Georgians now in positions of power attended the 1963 March on Washington 50 years ago today. Their memories are as diverse as they are. In Savannah, Mayor Edna Jackson sees a direct link between the march and what she now does as her daily job.
This week marks 50 years since the nation first heard Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have A Dream” speech. Wednesday marks the 50th anniversary of that speech given at the March on Washington. King was a son of Georgia, and is considered an American hero. But his life and his words inspire people around the world.
