Living the Legacy of the Movement
Carla Harris, Managing Partner at Morgan Stanley was barely a year old when the March on Washington occurred, yet she recognizes the impact of this event, the overall Civil Rights Movement, and those who participated in her own life and career. She reflected, "I'm standing on their shoulders, so in my mind, it is my responsibility and my obligation to let someone stand on mine."
Ms. Harris recognizes the contributions of Fannie Lou Hamer, among others. See the details of Ms. Hamer's violent arrest in Winona, MS in:
