Fifty Years Ago Today — March on Washington August 28, 1963

Today, thousands are gathering in Washington DC at the Lincoln Memorial, to honor one of the most important events in American History, the March on Washington, a milestone of the Civil Rights movement, a movement that still continues to this day. President Barak Obama, the nation’s first African-American President, along with former Presidents Clinton and Carter, will be there to remember the March and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s famous “I Have a Dream” speech.

Not able to make it to Washington? Commemorate this historic event with the library!
