Jailyn Anderson, 19, from Miami, Fla. a communications major at Howard University in Washington, D.C. came with her mother, Alicia Sherman-Anderson, 42, who graduated from Howard University in 1992.
Jailyn: “I came because it’s the 50th anniversary and I wanted to experience it. I like the idea of people randomly getting together for a common goal and cause. In the next 50 years, because I’m a student, I’d like to see more aid to students and more loans with lower interest rates.”
Alicia: “I came to the march to be a part of history and to witness all of the races coming together for one common goal—you can feel it in the atmosphere. In 50 years, I definitely hope there is equal pay as far as the genders. I hope the laws have changed as far as the Voting Rights. It doesn’t make sense that some of us can’t vote.”
