The line of marchers was not that long – about 50-plus. Down Riverside Drive it went, sounding off with lyrics from familiar standards:
"Keep Your Eyes on the Prize,"
"Ain't Gonna Let Nobody Turn Me Around,"
"This Little Light of Mine,"
And, of course, "We Shall Overcome."
The Memphis Children's March was a commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington. Presented by Gilliam Communications, owners of 1340-WLOK, it was a prelude to the radio station's 39th Annual Stone Soul Picnic in Tom Lee Park.
