The March is Must See

Comments about PBS The March DVD:

I loved The March. It reminds viewers that The March on Washington was more than just Dr. King's "I Have a Dream" speech. There were plenty of other civil rights activists whose names have been lost to history that played major roles in that event and in the advancement of African Americans. It also reminds viewers what that day was really about—and we still need to fight for today— economic justice.

What a time it was!

Comments about PBS The March DVD:

I can't imagine how there will ever be another March on Washington. And PBS with the help oh John Akomfrah and Denzel Washington did an amazing job in putting this enormous event on film. Even though I lived through this event, I learned a lot from the documentary. For example, I did not know that JFK wasn't all that keen on doing much to support civil rights. Gave me pause for thought. I am thrilled to have my own copy of "The March" and no doubt will learn something new every time I watch it.

And if you are a social studies teacher, buy it today. Your students will be awed by the images way beyond what you or anyone else could tell them.

THE MARCH

By Carol the Flyer

from The Republic of Brooklyn, N.Y.

Comments about PBS The March DVD:

A flood of remembrances wafted over me as I watched this exemplary documentary and I rejoiced that I had been right there in D.C. covering the extraordinary event for an African-Caribbean publication. Although I'd led the first five thousand or so early arrivals in a hearty cheer of "FREEDOM!" I didn't see me in the film. On a platform as I was introduced to singer Bobby Darin I was amused when he said to me (the first Black U.S.A. Flight Attendant) "I'd fly with YOU anytime!" Sincere thanks to the Producer for the fun memories! Ruth Carol Taylor R.N.

Well done. Everyone needs to see it. Does anyone know the lady who sang at the very end and the name of the song?
