Rockville resident reflects on the March on Washington
“I knew it then. That was a defining moment of my life. I think of him [King] as my mentor. I wanted to be that kind of minister. I wanted to be an activist. I'm not a brave guy or an out-front type person, but I've got to do something. I became an activist because if King can do it, why couldn't I—shouldn't I—be involved.”
