What Most Impressed Harry Belafonte About the March on Washington?
In this video from Smithsonian.com, Harry Belafonte said, in part,
"It was a much broader cross-section of America made up primarily of American workers. Because the labor movement had a huge presence…the march very prominently displayed was a march for jobs, equal human rights, recognizing workers…so it was movement for not only civil rights, but for worker’s rights."
Belafonte joins John Lewis, Clarence Jones, Julien Bond and Budd Mishkin at 92Y on Sep 25 to remember that historic day.
