August 28th, 2013 marked the 50th Anniversary of the 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. The March helped to propel the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 as well as the Voting Rights Act of 1965.  But The March is perhaps best known for being the venue where the Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his I Have a Dream speech to a crowd of over 250,000 people on The National Mall and to millions more watching at home.

Meet Me At Equality: The People’s March on Washington takes a look back at that day through the stories of 28 people who participated in The March.  Included in the group are: a World War II veteran who saw marching as part of his patriotic duty, an immigrant from England who never knew the sting of segregation until he arrived in America, a seven-year-old girl who thought she was going to meet Martin Luther King himself that day, a white minister who grew up in the segregated south and saw this day as a casting-off of the old and a way to establish himself and his identity, a mother-daughter pair, two sisters who marched together and five D.C. Metropolitan Police Officers who were on duty that day.

Meet Me at Equality: The People’s March on Washington combines interviews from participants with insightful commentary from a panel of historians to provide the audience with a view of what it was like to be present on a day when democracy descended on the nation’s capital, and erupted across the globe.

    Very powerful. Though I was not in the USA at that time
    but from my readings as well as witnessing the Poor People’s march,
    it stirred up memories as well as questions such as the difficulties:
    how come the lot of many African Americans is worth than it was?
    Grant you, I do understand some improvements have happened
    including the election of the first black president, whose first
    inaguration I attended traveling from Michigan.

    I would like you to do, if possible, a follow up on the documentary
    to show the predicament we find ourselves after the 19060s.

    Thank you for the inspiring documentary as well as allowing me to
    make comments/
