March on Washington Then and Now
At top, a large crowd marches for civil rights in Washington on Aug. 28, 1963; and at bottom, demonstrators march towards the Martin Luther King Junior Memorial during a rally to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the 1963 march on Saturday, Aug. 24, 2013. Aging veterans of the original March on Washington gathered with younger generations Saturday amassing a crowd that in contrast was more female, more Hispanic, and more diverse by sexual orientation than in 1963.
