Asian American activist Todd Endo was in Selma 50 years ago, just as he was at the march on Washington in 1963 to hear Martin Luther King’s “I have a dream” speech. (I took this photo of him at the 50th anniversary of that march in 2015).
This weekend, Endo called in from Selma where he attended the big anniversary of the marches there. We talked about what he felt then and now, about what he saw, and the Asian Americans at the event, including a Chinese American who was also at Selma in 1965.
