August 28, 2013 marks the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington

Don’t forget that tomorrow marks the 50th anniversary of one of the most famous events in American History…THE March on Washington. There may be many other marches in history, but none greater than the August 28, 1963 march led by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. King’s “I Have a Dream” speech will forever live in our hearts and minds as a pivotal point in the fight to bring down the walls of racial segregation in America.

jobs_justice Americans will commemorate this historic event by marching again on tomorrow, August 28, 2013. Whereas the 1963 march was a call for “Jobs and Freedom”, tomorrow’s march will be to address “Jobs and Justice” in America. As tomorrow’s march concludes on the National Mall, President Barack Obama will address the nation from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.  The march begins at  8:15 am when people will gather at 600 New Jersey Avenue, N.W. Washington, D.C.  and march to the steps of the Lincoln Memorial to hear the President speak from the very spot where Dr. King delivered his “I Have a Dream” speech 50 years ago.
