As I prepared to participate in the nation's largest memorial march in celebration of the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., I was immediately impressed by the seemingly endless sea of people waiting to march. It made me think of all the stories I had heard about the civil rights marches my own elder family members had been a part of.
