LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Members of the Greater Lafayette NAACP and the Greater Lafayette Rebuild the Dream Coalition met in Lafayette Sunday to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington.
The event started with a one hour showing of PBS's "Eyes on the Prize" documentary series, which discusses the Civil Rights movement.
After the showing, visitors discussed areas of concern regarding freedom and discrimination within the job market.
Rebuild the Dream Coalition member Harry Targ said the event is a way to motivate people to create positive change in society.
"I thought the panelists were great and that the discussion from the audience was really great," said Targ. "I guess the general conclusion is that there is a lot of work still to be done, particularly on the economic front."
Sunday's participants included Greater Lafayette NAACP president Sadie Harper-Scott. Harper-Scott was in Washington D.C. in August for the March on Washington celebration.
