On August 24th, I participated in the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington. I had the sense that I was marching in a spiral–in the inner rung was a tribute to the past. A tribute to the Civil Rights Heroes who marched 50 years ago, Myrlie Evers and John Lewis, who shared their resounding voices on the podium. In the outer rung was one of many reminders of the dream unfulfilled of jobs and freedom that I and so many were marching for, present in the fast food workers strike held the following day.
