“Just as they were announcing plans for the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington, black and civil rights leaders learned the Supreme Court had kicked back to a lower court a case challenging the use of race in college admissions.

That and other key cases before the Supreme Court connected to race and civil rights, the leaders said Monday, is why the five days of events marking the historic march this August will not simply be a commemoration.

One of the events, Aug. 24, will be a march from the Lincoln Memorial to the King Memorial in Washington and a rally by civil and human rights organizations.

“It is the intent of those that come together to make it clear that this is not just a nostalgia visit, that this is not a commemoration but a continuation and a call to action,” said the Rev.

CONGRESS SHOULD NOT BE A PART-TIME JOB!


MORE ACTION NEEDED: No Labels Co-Founder Dave Walker says that No Budget, No Pay is a step in the right direction but having a five-day workweek in Washington can bring even more accountability and solutions back to the capital. “According to the House calendar, it only plans to be in session during 2013 for 49.5 percent of weekdays … It’s outrageous that at a time when our nation’s finances are in such disarray, and the clock is ticking on our potential debt bomb, our elected officials are taking ‘spring breaks’ and a week off for every federal holiday instead of focusing full time on the task at hand,” he writes: David Walker forPOLITICO: No budget, no pay – no deal, no break
