A remembrance of the 1963 March on Washington, the massive gathering in Washington, D.C., in support of racial and economic equality that is perhaps best known for Martin Luther King Jr.'s stirring "I Have a Dream" speech. The documentary details the behind-the-scenes story of the event, including how it almost didn't come to pass; features rare archival footage; and includes remarks from many participants, including Harry Belafonte, Rutha Mae Harris, Norman Hill and Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.).
