Dedicated To The Proposition: One Woman Sings [01.19.09]

Bernice Johnson-Reagon performed at the 1963 March on Washington with the Freedom Singers. The day before the march, they finished a gig in California and took a red-eye flight to D.C. Bernice says although she was not nervous, she was overwhelmed by the large number of people who decided to come to one place and take a massive stance against racism. Also in the show: One woman remembers her time at the March of 1963.
