After her months of tedious work came to fruition with a well-attended and successful march, Horowitz reveled in the moment at the end of the day.
"All of us who had worked on the march," continued Horowitz, "were just incredibly happy and pleased with what had happened. And we all linked hands and sang 'We Shall Overcome.' "
Horowitz went on to be Rustin's assistant and eventually served as the political director for the American Federation of Teachers.
