For the past week and this coming week, there are many events commemorating its 50th anniversary. Saturday, 24 August, included a commemorative March on Washington, with at least tens of thousands of participants from all over the US and the world. I made it there for just a few hours during the afternoon. Here are a few pics.
Thanks for looking. There are more of my afternoon pics here:
