Memories of the March: Pittsburgh Stories

Fifty years ago, a quarter of a million people gathered in our nation's capital for the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. At that iconic civil rights demonstration, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. gave his most-quoted speech, "I Have A Dream." Pittsburgh area men and women were there; they share their thoughts of that day -- and the events leading up to that time and the ensuing years -- in "Memories of the March."
