This is the Day: The March on Washington
Brigitte Freed, Michael Eric Dyson, and Paul Farber talked about Leonard Freed’s work and displayed many of his photographs from the March on Washington at the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. The late photojournalist Leonard Freed (1929-2006) documented the March on Washington from its preparations to the day of the proceedings and its aftermath. His hundreds of photographs have been curated by his widow, Brigitte Freed, and accompanied by an essay for the collection by Michael Eric Dyson, sociology professor at Georgetown University, and an afterword authored by Paul Farber, visiting instructor in Urban Studies at the University of Pennsylvania. close
