Robert Woodson, the president and founder of the National Center for Neighborhood Enterprise, discussed the current state of black America, including the economic and political status of African-Americans. He reflected on the advance of the civil-rights movement in the thirty years since the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. The march culminated in a number of speeches given at the Lincoln Memorial and included Rev. Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” speech. Mr. Woodson expressed optimism on the effects of the march for the educated and financially successful but noted that those still living in poverty have not seen their situation changed notably. C-SPAN’s Ed Maddox moderated the conversation which included calls from viewers. close
