The 50th anniversary of the 1963 March on Washington, a pivotal moment in U.S. history, is Aug. 28. Bill Fletcher Jr., an author, activist and senior scholar at the Institute for Policy Studies in Washington, D.C., offers lesson ideas, such as comparing the text of the speech given by Martin Luther King Jr. with video clips, plus examining other speeches of the day. "We can all do justice to this anniversary by asking the right questions and providing the actual historical context in which the 1963 March unfolded," Fletcher writes in this blog post.
