A matter of dreams, character and peace

CBS News special correspondent James Brown recently interviewed 76-year-old former University of Iowa basketball coach George Raveling on an episode of CBS Sunday Morning.

In the interview, Raveling said he was visiting his best friend Warren Wilson and family 50 years ago in Wilmington, Del.

At Wilson's father's urging, they made plans to attend the March in Washington for Jobs and Freedom Aug. 28, 1963, Raveling said.

They arrived the night before and were recruited as volunteers.

Raveling told Brown the two were assigned to handle security around the podium.
