We Are Overcoming, Today
This week, people from across the United States are marking the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington, D.C.
Anthanette Thomas Clark grew up in Greensboro in the 1940's. She attended segregated schools and was shut out of movie houses, restaurants and many public places by signs that read, For Whites Only. When Clark was 16, she joined the Civil Rights battle and was among thousands who took this fight to our nation's capitol. Now at 69, Clark is a retired teacher and lives in Greensboro with her husband, Joe. They have two daughters and two grand-daughters. She says the battle is still not won. Her reflections on WFDD’s Real People, Real Stories.
