To Join ’63 March On Washington: ‘Like Climbing A Mountain’ by Michelle Norris

There are many anniversaries from the Civil Rights Movement this year, including the March on Washington.

For the Month of August, Morning Edition and The Race Card Project are looking back at a seminal moment in civil rights history: The March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, where the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., delivered his iconic “I Have A Dream Speech” on Aug. 28, 1963. Approximately 250,000 people descended on the nation’s capitol from all over the country for the mass demonstration.”
