Wednesday August 28, 2013 represented the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington of 1963. In this broadcast we take a look at some of the speakers who delivered presentations or were involved in the organizing of the march.
We played again the pledge of A. Philip Randolph and the demands of Bayard Rustin. There was also an interview with Gloria Richardson of SNCC out of Cambridge, Maryland who discussed the role of women in the Civil Rights Movement and their marginalization at the March on Washington.
Also one leading critic of the march was Malcolm X. We listen to excerpts from his Black Unity Speech of August 10, 1963 in Harlem.
