We have received a new DVD, just in time for Black History Month. Narrated by Denzel Washington, documents the renowned and historic 1963 March on Washington for jobs and freedom. It was a watershed moment of the civil rights movement and brought together a huge coalition of powerful and revered civil rights organizations, labor unions, and civil rights leaders. Collected here are the stories that led to the march, the fierce opposition it faced, and the heroic endeavors to raise funds and organize the march. (Key search words for other videos from WGBY’s free lending library: black history, African American, discrimination). Borrow The March (I.D. 2450) by clicking here.
