Alexis Scott: 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington
Monday, August 26, 2013
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his famous speech during the March on Washington 50 years ago, in 1963. Beverly’s guest, Alexis Scott, was just 14 at the time; she has had a front row seat, watching the Civil Rights Movement unfold in her own backyard. Her grandfather founded the Atlanta Daily World, the nation’s first black-owned newspaper in the 20th century, in 1932. Alexis became publisher of the newspaper and has interviewed, or been on panels with, some of the top Civil Rights leaders of our time. Since that historic event, what worked and what still needs attention? Find out how Alexis views this historic event.
