Barbara Blackburn was 22 years old when she hopped in a cab as the sun rose on Aug. 28, 1963, and headed toward the Lincoln Memorial. She was one of about 250,000 people on the Mall that historic day 50 years ago to hear the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. deliver his famous "I Have a Dream" speech and inspire a peaceful civil rights revolution.
A jury has convicted the civil rights chief at the Maryland attorney general's office of misdemeanor possession of marijuana.
"These are the men and women who came from around the country — butchers, barbers, beauticians, farmers, they were everyday people," said Carl Snowden, chairman of the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
