The 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom – capped off by Dr Martin Luther King, Jr’s stirring “I Have A Dream” speech – is regarded today as a key moment in the American Civil Rights movement.
Rich Egger's guest is Civil Rights leader C.T. Vivian, who grew up in Macomb. Dr Vivian was back in town to speak at the Dealing With Difference Institute at Western Illinois University.
Vivian was a close friend of Dr Martin Luther King, Jr. and worked alongside him during the American Civil Rights movement of the 1950s and '60s. He said the world does not change unless people get involved.
