Today In History: March On Washington

Fifty years ago today, over 200,000 people came together in Washington, D.C. to protest racial inequality in the United States. Basically, one of the raddest events in American history. As with any anniversary, the occasion has media types revisiting the August 28, 1963 event:

– The alway fantastic public radio history show BackStory has a whole hour of programming related to the March on Washington.
– A couple of years ago, WNYC’s On the Media did a piece on Matin Luther King, Jr.’s oratorial style.
– And speaking of MLK, Mother Jones is one of the many outlets bringing up the persistent copyright problems attached to his “I Have a Dream” speech.
