The Power of Words

Benita Porter - Clifton Park, New York
As heard on The Bob Edwards Show, August 30, 2013

On August 28, 1963, Benita Porter went with her mother to attend the March on Washington. It was during Dr. King’s spellbinding message of hope, love, and the universality of mankind that Ms. Porter was inspired by the belief that words—her own words—could arouse passion, change minds, and bring about social change.
