Memories of the March

A Defining Moment for Pittsburgh Activist Sala Udin


As a 20-year-old, Sala Udin of Pittsburgh made the trip to the March on Washington without a defined purpose in his life. Dr. King’s impassioned “I Have A Dream” speech inspired him to devote himself to pursuing civil and human rights. He first worked as a freedom fighter in the Mississippi Delta, then returned to Pittsburgh to pursue a half century career as a community activist.
