We Shall Overcome: Documentary of the March on Washington

On August 28th, 1963, more than 250,000 people from across the United States gathered in Washington DC to join in peaceful protest against racial segregation and demand equal rights legislation from Congress. This radio broadcast, with performances by Joan Baez, Odetta, Bob Dylan, Peter, Paul & Mary, and Marian Anderson, and featuring Martin Luther King Jr’s inspiring "I have a dream" speech, documents this pivotal event in the Civil Rights movement, where the nation came together to demand that everyone be "...free at last!" Four-page transcription of broadcast.
