The March on Washington, 50 years later

Today marks the 50th anniversary of the famous March on Washington, aka The March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, the rally that culminated in Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “I Have A Dream” speech. Over the past week in the run up to today, we’ve run many stories and columns about the March’s anniversary, all of which are collected below, along with video of King’s legendary speech. Check back later today when the remembrance culminates in a speech by President Barack Obama to which we’ll provide live video.
