\On Washington August 28, 1963, VOA posted a series of videos remembering the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington. The march is widely credited with helping to pass the Civil Rights Act (1964) and the Voting Rights Act (1965).
This month, the United States is honoring the legacy of slain civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr. Fifty years ago ((August 28, 1963)) Reverend King led the famous March on Washington and gave the "I Have a Dream" speech, a masterpiece that galvanized the nation to support equal rights for African Americans. VOA correspondent Meredith Buel has this profile of King and his fight for desegregation and against racism.
