BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -
The many steps taken by our past
heroes have Southern University students remembering and wanting to pay
tribute. That is why the Southern Black Law Student Association had their own
version of the March on Washington.
"As far as we come we still have
even further to go from here," said Southern Law School student
Gray is far too young to have
been around for Dr. King's speech 50 years ago. But the law student knows what
happened decades ago made a huge impact.
"We are historically black law
school had it not have been the original march happened in 1963 a lot of us
wouldn't be here today, "said Gray.

President Simone Bray just got back this morning from spending the weekend in
Washington D.C., for events commemorating the 50th anniversary of the march. She
says the trip was an experience of a life time.
"I was about to relive the steps
of the people that inspired my grandmother and my mother and father," said
Inspiration freshman Tyler Riley
had only read about, before experiencing it first-hand.
"Seeing all those black activists
from 50 years ago that were actually there with Martin Luther King really
amazed me that stuff I see in the history books," said Riley
Bray says those books we read are
still waiting for another chapter to be written.
"There is more that we can do, there is more places we can go,
there are more places that we need to be," said Bray.
