James Farmer, National Director, Congress For Racial Equality (CORE) was unable to attend the famous March on Washington on 8/28/1963. You see Mr. Farmer, was imprisoned in Louisana at the time fighting for freedom for those who were battling injustice. He refused to leave the jail cells until every person arrested with him was freed. So his words on that day were read by Floyd McKissick in the form of a letter written from jail. Although not as widely read as Dr. King's Letter From a Birmingham Jail. It was a message that was needed that day and we still must remember it today. The battle for complete justice is still being fought for people of color today. Respect for James Farmer, In His Words My Voice.
