Francis Oliver Remembers The March

Francis Oliver Remembers The March

Growing up in Sanford, Fla., Francis Oliver only knew the black community. Her father was protective of his family, and didn’t want her wandering too far from home. As a teenager, she participated in her first civil rights protest at a whites-only dance. She remembers watching the March on Washington on TV – and how it changed her life. She now curates a museum dedicated to black history.
