Tonight, the eve of the actual anniversary, PBS is airing "The March," featuring interviews with Harry Belafonte, Julian Bond, Diahann Carroll, Rep. John Lewis, Oprah Winfrey and Andrew Young, to name a few.
Using archival footage, "The March" recounts the events leading up to the gathering of about 250,000 people in Washington, D.C., and what impact it had on America.
"'The March' is the watershed moment of the civil rights movement, the culmination of 100 years of activism against segregation and social injustice for people of color in the U.S.," director John Akomfrah said.
"Retelling this story is my small contribution to that monumental struggle."
"The March" airs at 9 tonight on Channel 9.
