March on Washington Latinos-3

In this Aug. 21, 2013 photo, Maria Varela, 73, discusses her role in the Civil Rights movement in Alabama and Mississippi and her photography, at her home in Albuquerque, N.M. While Varela was one of a handful of Mexican-American activists involved in the civil rights movement in the South, she did not support the 1963 March on Washington. She was a member of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee and later became a photographer for the group. (AP Photo/Russell Contreras)
