Wednesday marks the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom (Aug. 28, 1963).
More than a quarter of a million people came to Washington D.C. for the storied civil rights event. Many speakers addressed the crowd but it was Dr. King’s I Have a Dream speech that resonated the most then – and still does today. In honor of that day, photos from the historic day.
