March on Washington – Ithaca College and NBC News

In a previous post we mentioned that students from Ithaca College’s Park School of Communications were going to be participating in a unique collaboration with NBC Nightly News – Weekend Edition with Lester Holt.

Thirteen IC students went to DC to cover the 50th Anniversary events that took place on August 24th.  They were working in conjunction with NBC News’ coverage of the event.  Here’s the piece that aired.  A lot of the footage you see was shot by NBC crews.  But a good chunk of it was shot by Ithaca College students, including: the people-on-the-street interviews, following Russell Graddy in DC, and some of the footage with David Vlahad.
