MEMPHIS, TN (localmemphis.com) - Civil Rights icon Rev. Samuel Billy Kyles remembers the March on Washington 50 years ago.

Kyles helped organize and execute the march but couldn't finish it because he passed out and had to go to the hospital.

He tells LocalMemphis.com Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. would be pleased with the state of the African-American community but not satisfied.

"We're at a very high point," Kyles said. "But still have a long way to go."
