On the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington, thousands of people came out to Palo Alto's "Let Freedom Ring" celebration at City Hall to commemorate the historic event. The program included remarks by Dr. Clayborne Carson, director of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. Research and Education Institute, Dolores Huerta, the co-founder of United Farm Workers and civil activist, and musical performances by Kim Nalley, the SCU Gospel Choir and Americano Social Club.
