Building Bridges, the National Edition with Mimi Rosenberg & Ken Nash ***************** Fifty Years Later, Commemorating and Learning from One of the Great Moments in History - The 1963 March on Washington for Jobs, Freedom and Civil Rights with Prof. William P. Jones, author of The March on Washington: Jobs, Freedom and Forgotten History of Civil Rights
Weâll probe deeply into the significance of the massive 1963 march and the movement it inspired with civil rights and labor historian William P. Jones . While in a resounding cadence, King lifted the crowd when he told of his dream that all Americans would join together to realize the founding ideal of equality, the very power of King speech has also narrowed our understanding of the march which was organized by A. Philip Randolph Pres. of the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters. Prof. Jones reminds us that this was a movement of sustained grassroots organizing, linked locally to womenâs groups, unions, civil rights and faith-based organizations across the country â it was a movement of the grassroots. Prof. Jones restores the March to its full significance and with his fresh, compelling history delivers a new understanding of this emblematic event and the broader movement it propelled and what it instructs for building a movement now for Jobs, Freedom and Civil rights as we get ready to return once again to March on Washington on August 24th to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the first March to demand the implementation of its still unrealized goals of Jobs and Freedom. . ************************************ Please email Building Bridges if you are broadcasting our National Edition.
