During this Spring Fund Drive, we’re looking back at some of our favorite work we’ve brought you on City Café in recent months.
August 28th, 2013 marked the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, which culminated in Martin Luther King, Junior’s historic “I Have a Dream” speech.
Lonnie C. King, Junior and Constance Curry are two lifelong activists and educators who were active in the Atlanta Student Movement that led up to the March. The movement in Atlanta fought for racial integration through boycotts of downtown businesses and sit-ins at Rich’s Department store. It was largely galvanized by the landmark sit-ins in Greensboro, North Carolina in 1960.
