A Call For Racial Equality
13 February 2017 | by strong-122-478885See all my reviews

(*Martin Luther King quote*) - "I have a dream."

If you are at all interested in knowing about the American Civil Rights Movement as it clearly stood (on shaky ground) in the early 1960s, then this first-rate, PBS documentary called "The March" will certainly be worth your while to watch.

Featuring plenty of excellent archival footage, along with interviews with those involved - "The March" carefully chronicles the events that inevitably led up to (what is considered to be) one of the greatest marches for racial equality in American history.

It was on August 28, 1963 that over 200,000 people (black & white) peacefully showed up in droves in Washington, DC (from many states) in order to be part of this powerfully moving, historical event.
