It includes interviews with some of the key actors; members of the inner circles of the core organizational groups; Hollywood supporters and civil rights campaigners; John F. Kennedy administration officials; and the ordinary people who became part of the crowd of thousands, who thronged to Washington D.C. by all and every means: plane, bus and car. 

The March’ is the story of discrimination, defiance and victory told by the people who made it happen and whose lives it changed forever. Learn more below.
