Charles Euchner, lecturer at Yale University, presents a history of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom that took place on August 28, 1963. The March, marked by Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” speech at the Lincoln Memorial, was attended by over a quarter-million people. Mr. Euchner, recounts the political and social tensions of the day, including the push for women speakers, the critical words of Malcolm X, and the Kennedy administration’s dispersement of military and police due to their fears, contrary to the March’s organizers, that the event may not be peaceful. Charles Euchner discussed his book at the New Haven Public Library in New Haven, Connecticut. close
