March on Washington Latinos

In this Wednesday Aug. 21, 2013 photo, Maria Varela, 73, recollects her role in the Civil Rights movement in Alabama and Mississippi, 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 March on Washington because of differences within the movement. She was a member of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee and later became a photographer for the group. (AP Photo/Russell Contreras)
