Thousands gathered at the National Mall Saturday, August 24, 2013 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington. Speakers including Martin Luther King III and Democratic Rep. John Lewis, who was the youngest speaker at the 1963 march. Lewis encouraged the crowd to continue the fight for social justice.

“But for them, I would not be Attorney General of the United States and Barack Obama would not be President of the United States of America.”

— Attorney General Eric Holder

Attorney General Eric Holder kicked off the celebration. President Barack Obama will deliver an address from the Lincoln Memorial Thursday, August 29, 2013 at 3:00 p.m., the exact hour Martin Luther King, Jr. gave his landmark “I Have a Dream” speech.


Fifty years later Martin Luther King III, follows his father’s footsteps by speaking on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.

Martin Luther King III (born October 23, 1957 to Martin Luther King, Jr. and Coretta Scott King) is an American human rights advocate and community activist.


Congressman John Lewis returns to Washington and talks about not giving up for equality.


Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton reflects on the 1963 march on Washington 50 years ago.

As student, Eleanor Holmes graduated from Antioch College (B.A. 1960), Yale University (M.A. in American Studies 1963)[and Yale Law School (LL.B 1964). She married Edward Norton, who died in 1993.

Eleanor Holmes was an organizer for the 1963 march on Washington in 1963.

In the early 1970s, Eleanor Holmes Norton was a signer of the Black Woman’s Manifesto, a classic document of the Black feminist movement that promoted role integration, and sharing of responsibilities of men and women — as opposed to women being a stepping stone for men.

Eleanor Holmes Norton appointed by President Jimmy Carter as the first female Chair of the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in 1977, Norton released the EEOC’s first set of regulations outlining what constituted sexual harassment and declaring that sexual harassment was indeed a form of sexual discrimination that violated federal civil rights laws.
