Yesterday at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C., President Barack
Obama led the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington celebrations

The 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington is almost here and the
commemorative events have already begun. Throughout
Washington, D.C., there will be ceremonies, speeches, round-table
discussions and festivals all in remembrance of the rally that took
place on August 28, 1963, a big day in civil rights history.
