March on Washington - 1993 and 2013

I recently attended the 50th anniversary gathering of the 1963 March on Washington.

A very positive experience. I recalled that in 1993 I covered the 30th anniversary commemorative gathering. I covered that March for the AFL-CIO, mostly assigned to document Mrs. Coretta Scott King, the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.'s widow.

Most of the slide film I shot that day went to my client,; who knows where it is now. I found a page of slides from the event, with a few photos of Mrs. King, the Rev. Jesse Jackson, and other participants. I have mixed them all in with a few images from this year's March.

Do yourself a favor. Listen to Dr. King's "I Have a Dream" speech.
