The March

Learn the dramatic story behind the 1963 March on Washington through the remembrances of key players such as Jack O’Dell, Clarence B. Jones, Julian Bond, and Andrew Young. Hear other testimonials of the March from Harry Belafonte, Diahann Carroll, Roger Mudd, Peter Yarrow, and Oprah Winfrey, in addition to historians, journalists, authors, and ordinary citizens — some 250,000 Americans who thronged to the capital on that momentous day to peacefully demand an end to two centuries of discrimination and injustice.
