Fourteenth Sunday After Pentecost: Fiftieth Anniversary of the March on Washington

August 25, 2013

On August 28, 1963, demonstrators marched from the Washington Monument to the Lincoln Memorial, demanding the passage of meaningful civil-rights legislation, the elimination of racial segregation in public schools, protection for demonstrators against police brutality, a major public-works program to provide jobs, the passage of a law prohibiting racial discrimination in public and private hiring, a $2/hour minimum wage, and self-government for the District of Columbia, which had a black majority.
