Power of Words Film Series: The March

  • Meadowood 2455 East Tamarack Trail Bloomington, IN, 47408 United States (map)

WTIU in association with Friends of the Library & Monroe County Public Library presents:

The March

‘The March’ is the story of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, told by the people who organized and participated in it. 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.
