One of the most memorable images of the 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, one of the largest political rallies in US history that called for civil rights for African Americans, was a photograph of a young girl. 

Edith Lee Payne, now a community activist in Detroit, only learned of the existence of the picture five years ago when a cousin recognised her in a catologue.

She reflects on the historic march and how her experiences during the civil rights movement helped shape her as a person today.
