On this 50th anniversary of the March on Washington, we turn an eye toward the future of the civil rights movement and the dreams of this generation of activists.
Rashad Robinson is the Executive Director of Color of Change, and Majora Carter is the founder of the non-profit Sustainable Bronx. They are just two examples of black Americans who are dedicating their lives to improving their communities.
Their dreams for the black community sound a lot like Martin Luther King, Jr's and those who marched on Washington half a century ago. But their organizational tactics have evolved, changing in step with a more corporate and tech-savvy world.
Carter and Robinson say that while the marchers in 1963 sought government intervention, they are more focused today on realizing the economic opportunities of the poorest communities by utilizing technology and market-based tools.
