MEMORIES OF THE MARCH

Francis Oliver Remembers The March

  • Aired: 08/26/2013
  • 02:24
  • Rating: NR
Growing up in Sanford, Fla., Francis Oliver only knew the black community. Her father was protective of his family, and didn’t want her wandering too far from home. As a teenager, she participated in her first civil rights protest at a whites-only dance. She remembers watching the March on Washington on TV – and how it changed her life. She now curates a museum dedicated to black history.
