Harvey Milk Day 2010: Cleve Jones reflects on the slain LGBT rights leader (video)

Although California is the only state to celebrate Harvey Milk Day, which marks the birthday of the slain civil rights leader, Milk's legacy is being remembered by activists in cities across the country this week. Equality Across America's Cleve Jones, the driving force behind last year's National Equality March for LGBT Rights, interned with Milk in the months before his death. Jones reflects on his friend and mentor in this video by USA Today. Harvey Milk would have been 80 years old on Saturday.
