On August 28, 1963, the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom brought more than a quarter of a million people to the nation’s capital. It was one of the largest political rallies in human history.
Fifty years later, its anniversary celebration will be the occasion for the modern American civil and human rights community to celebrate, organize, reflect, and plan for the future.
The March on Washington Film Festival launched in July 2013 with ten screenings over a fifteen day period and brought together the best documentary and feature films to celebrate and learn from our civil rights history. It will continue with another series in 2014.
