"The 5:44" with Denis O'Hayer

Remembering the March on Washington: A Talk with Atlanta Rep. John Lewis (D-Georgia)

Wednesday, August 28, 2013 is the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington.

In a series of conversations, WABE is collecting stories from people who were a part of it.

John Lewis is now a Democratic Congressman from Atlanta.  At the time of the march, he was a leader of the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee (SNCC).  He was one of the “Big 6” organizers of the march, and is the sole surviving speaker from that demonstration.  

Congressman Lewis spoke with WABE’s Denis O’Hayer.
