NAACP members head to D.C. on 50th anniversary of Washington march



ORLANDO, Fla. - Dozens of central Floridians are getting ready for a trip to the nation's capital to mark a milestone in the civil rights movement.

A group from the NAACP office in Orlando set off on a road trip Friday for the 50th anniversary of the march on Washington in 1963.

"Just to let people know that we still have some challenges and some issues to deal with, and we need to bring, keep them on the forefront and let them know that the dream has not really arrived, but we're working on it," said Kran Riley of NAACP Orlando.

It's about a 12-hour bus ride.

The group will participate in events that begin this weekend, along with a number of events over the next week.
