Obama links US economic struggles to Martin Luther King Jr-led civil rights rally
2013-08-28 18:14:21 | (0 Comments)
US President Barack Obama has linked the ongoing struggle for economic equality in America with the goals of the 1963 March on Washington, in a speech marking its 50th anniversary.
He noted that because of the march America became more free and fair.
However, Obama argued the very significance of these victories may have obscured a second goal of the march, which was jobs and the promise of equal economic opportunity.
Obama, who is the first black US president, said ensuring economic opportunity was a great unfinished business.
Members of the King family and veterans of the march also spoke.
