The women behind the 1963 March on Washington

But on that day, another group was denied the spotlight: the women who played a crucial role in pulling the march together. Mark Strassmann reports on Dorothy Height, Rosa Parks and the other women who played behind-the-scenes roles in the historic march, as part of the CBSN special “The Power of August."
