Young people seek leading roles in the 50th anniversary March on Washington

Young people are eager to put their own stamp on events observing the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington.

Like Martin Luther King Jr. and John Lewis before them, young Americans are not letting age get in the way as they push for social reform.

Saturday's march included several youth speakers — the youngest was just 9-years-old. Also on hand was the student group Dream Defenders, who protested Florida's "stand your ground" law by staging a 31-day sit-in at the governor's office.

The last surviving speaker from the 1963 march, Georgia Rep. John Lewis encouraged today's youth to use all the tools at their disposal to, as he put it, "get out there and push and pull and make America what it should be for all of us."
