  1. This video made me smile! I love that the women were shaking their stuff to Katy Perry’s Firework song, and smiling, laughing,dancing and marching along without fear or threat of attack. When I compare it to the footage taken 100 years ago, the atmosphere certainly was very different, although I am sure the message has always been a serious one, now and back then. Great videos and very encouraging to see such huge numbers out in modern times.

  2. I liked watching this video. Does anyone know the significance of the red jackets the ladies were wearing and what the letter on them mean? i would be interested to know.

  3. The red jackets are from Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, organizer of the 2013 parade as part of their festivities. When a troop of fearless young black women from the new Howard University sorority joined the all-white parade in 1913, they boldly challenged the segregationist policies that might have excluded them. Now, one hundred years later, the sorority led the parade! What an event!

    We’re a group of volunteers and starting a new project in our community. Your site provided us with valuable information to work on.

  5. If there’s anything I like most on this blog, it’s the newsy notes. Look forward to them every month.
