And Freedom for All: The March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom
In August, 1963 over 200,000 people gathered on the Mall in Washington D.C. for a rally in support of civil and economic rights for African Americans in the United States. On August 28 Martin Luther King gave his famous I Have a Dream speech at the rally.
The exhibit, And Freedom For All, contains (48) unpublished photographs from the archives of LOOK magazine photographer Stanley Tretick and depicts the march participants surrounding the Lincoln Memorial; African Americans participating in the March; and President John F. Kennedy and Vice President Lyndon Johnson at the White House, U.S. Capitol and Lincoln Memorial with Martin Luther King, Jr. and organizers.
This display is part of the university’s eighth Annual African Presence Art Exhibition and 2011 Black History Month celebration.
The exhibit was developed by Art Vision Exhibitions.
Free and open to the public.
