Audrey the President of the local chapter of the NAACP opens the speeches and Tony, the first Vice President delivers the final word and encouragement to "wake up!"

This portion of the event in this video was near the end of the rally, march & speeches, at Waterfront. Park.

Audrey mentions to the crowd that you would think these same issue 50 years later after that march on Washington, would not still be a problem.

Tony brings the conversation around to the nightmare on hand now. He brings up the challenge of today, 50 years later the same issues are still prevalent and require our attention. In a riveting sincere call out... he asks us all:

How long ...
