Roger A. Clay Jr. at the Unifinished March Symposium


Although August 28 marks the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, the setting of Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech, the goals of the march remain largely unfinished. On Monday, July 22 2013, the Economic Policy Institute held a symposium to review America’s civil rights successes as well as the significant amount of civil rights work that remains to be done. At the symposium, the speakers detailed how critical achieving the economic goals of the march are to fully transforming the life opportunities for communities of color and America’s working families.

Roger A. Clay Jr., former president of the Insight Center was a panelist on "The Politics of Race in America: Are We Making Progress?" panel.

Below is an excerpt from the symposium.
