The Civil Rights History Project: Survey of Collections and Repositories
Ruth Ann Overbeck Capitol Hill History Project
Repository: Capitol Hill Community Foundation
Collection Description (Extant): Memories of the 1963 March on Washington are arriving daily and being posted to our new Memories page. Each story reflects what an individual saw and felt on August 28, 1963, when Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. made his "I Have a Dream" speech to an unprecedented crowd that had gathered on the Washington Mall.
Since November, the Overbeck oral history project has been accepting online submission of individual stories. We invite anyone who remembers the March to use our online form to submit their memory for posting. Relatives and friends of those who need assistance are welcome to post on the other person's behalf.
