Streaming Video - 2013
Rate this:
In this edition of Moyers & Company, two icons of the '60s civil rights era-John Lewis and Bill Moyers-meet to share experiences and revelations related to the momentous March on Washington, which they both attended 50 years ago. Their discussion takes them to the spot in front of the Lincoln Memorial where Lewis, Martin Luther King Jr., Bayard Rustin, Roy Wilkins, and others famously spoke about freedom and justice, creating critical momentum for both the Civil Rights Act and the Voting Rights Act. Representative Lewis (now a 14-term congressman) shares new insight into how the event unfolded, while Bill (who at the time was deputy director of the newly created Peace Corps) shares his own memories of the day. He concludes with an essay about how the pursuit of equal rights and opportunities for all Americans-so championed at the March on Washington-continues to be thwarted.
