Hours before buses left for the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington, youth members of the Boston NAACP’s Pipeline to Leadership program stood outside the Mall of Roxbury cheering and waving posters. For many, this trip would be their first to the nation’s capital. Nearly 300 people would join them on the journey and in their excitement.
