It was a Wednesday - August 28, 1963 - but people wore their Sunday best, despite the heat and humidity. The marchers, black and white, celebrity and unknown, came in droves from all over the nation, heading for the towering spire of the Washington Monument in D.C. All of them shared the same dream: freedom and equality for 19 million African Americans. Almost 300,000 strong, they had come to Washington, D.C., from around the world to bear witness and to petition Congress to pass the President's Civil Rights bill. Stanley Tretick, a seasoned photojournalist of immense talent who had earned his stripes taking many of the most popular photos of President Kennedy and his family, was also in the crowd, drawing inspiration from the historic scenes unfolding before him. In this magnificent book, just in time for the fiftieth anniversary of the March on Washington, his iconic, stirring photographs of that day are collected for the first time. Accompanied by an insightful essay and captions from bestselling author Kitty Kelley that provide a fascinating behind-the-scenes narrative of the March, this beautiful keepsake of a book brings America at her best vibrantly to life.
