Today marks the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington and Dr. Martin Luther King's history-making "I Have a Dream Speech." We'll talk to Bay Area residents who attended the march about what that experience was like, how it changed them and the course of the civil rights movement in America. And, 50 years later, how different is the state of race relations in this country?

Guests:

Michael Nolan, San Francisco promoter and producer who helped plan the 1963 March

Cecil Williams, founder and minister of liberation of the Glide Memorial United Methodist Church in San Francisco

Kim Parker, associate director of Pew Research Center's Social & Demographic Trends Project

Daphne Muse, director emeritus of the Mills College Women's Leadership Institute
