Agnes Powell: Women of the March on Washington
To celebrate Women's HERstory Month, we post a video every Friday to spotlight the powerful women who were at the March on Washington in 1963.
Agnes Powell talked to us about her experience participating in the March on Washington of 1963 at the 50th Anniversary in 2013. In the video below she gives powerful insights into the next steps forward, how far we've come, and the importance of passing the torch to younger generations. The interview evolved into a discussion about a change in leadership and what Congressman John Lewis is teaching young people about activism today.
