After all these years, Claudia Johnson “still marches”

August 28, 2013

August 28 002A Seneca woman who has taken part in two separate anniversaries of the original March on Washington in 1963 says, after all these years, she and others still march for some of the same ideals that Dr. Martin Luther King espoused 50 years ago. Claudia Johnson and others last night also remembered what life was like in Seneca before the civil rights bill became law—such as separate water fountains at a department store, separate seating arrangements at a movie theatre. And another woman who took part in last nights program at the Seneca Library remembered one Seneca restaurant that served blacks, but required them to stand at the back door of the restaurant and wait first for whites to be served.
