Gerald Bundy of Philadelphia was 13 when his older cousin convinced him to go to the March on Washington in 1963. Bundy returned 50 years later to celebrate the anniversary. When he looks back on it now he believes the experience, "made me more cognizant of social justice; made me an activist."
Going down to the National Mall on Saturday allowed me to envision what it would have been like to participate in the March on Washington in 1963. I set out into the crowd and found people who made that journey 50 years ago, as well as many others making it for the first time.
