March on Washington

On August 28, 2013 citizens from across this country will converge upon our nation’s capital to commemorate and celebrate the historic March on Washington which occurred 50 years ago on August 28, 1963. The March is about 1.6 miles long.

Mr. Obama, speaking in front of the Lincoln Memorial where 50 years ago Dr. King gave his famous “I Have a Dream Speech,” said that advances in securing voting rights, civil rights and the eradication of legalized discrimination of African-Americans show that part of Dr. King’s goals were achieved.

But he cited income inequality and disparities in the unemployment rate between blacks and whites as among examples of how Dr. King’s goals remained unfulfilled. Tying the 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom to concerns about economic inequality today, he reminded people that jobs were a central goal of those marching years ago.
