Loretta Slepikas was only 23 back then, but she remembers it well.

 

She spoke about that event with the Bend Bulletin and they put her interview on "You Tube."

 

"It was that spriit that we felt it was the end of prejudice that things have really changed. But of course a couple months later, President Kennedy was assassinated in November, and then Bobby  Kennedy and then Malcolm X. It wasn't the end and it isn't the end still.  There's a lot of work to do."

 

In 1963, Slepikas was 23 years old and was a college student in Wisconsin.  She went to the march with her best friend in college who was a black woman from Harlem.
