    Cool choice of picture! I remember seeing an exhibit at the National Railroad Museum in Green Bay WI focused on the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters that was quite good.

      It’s worth pointing out this wasn’t just a “March on Washington”, but rather a “March to Washington for Jobs and Freedom”. Common as it is, neglecting those last four words is why extremist pundits have twisted and neutered MLK’s ideas to suggest all he wanted was a colour-blind society, rather than a society that fed the poor and healed the sick.

    I am also ‘virtually’ attending! Thank you so much for this tribute to the struggle for civil rights and racial harmony.
