On August 28, 1963 it looks as though Bernie Sanders stood only a few feet away fromDr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in the "March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom" where Dr. King delivered his historic "I Have a Dream" speech on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C.
In the photo below you can see Dr. King (center) as he leads thousands of civil rights demonstrators out on the last leg of their Selma to Montgomery 50-mile hike. Others identifiable in the front row include John Davis (2nd from left) of SNCC, King's aide Reverend Ralph Abernathy (3rd from left), Dr. Ralph Bunche (5th from left), Mrs. King (next to her husband) and Reverend Hosea Williams carrying a little girl on the right.

In 1964, Hillary nee Rodham/Clinton campaigned for Republican Senator Barry Goldwater who promised to racially re-segregate the nation and overturn the Civil Rights Act.
It should also be noted that it wasn't all the members of the Congressional Black Caucus that just endorsed Hillary Clinton, it was their SuperPAC — approved by a board awash in lobbyists. (Related post: Why Blacks should vote for Bernie Sanders)
