The library’s Super Summer Saturday series for the same day features children’s programs to accompany the temporary exhibit “And Freedom for All: The March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.” Professional storytelling and arts and crafts are available for everyone from pre-school to high school students. The display features photographs taken for Look Magazine by Stanley Tretick of the march, which took place Aug. 28, 1963. He went along behind the scenes with organizers and speakers. Approximately 250,000 people took part in the largest demonstration ever seen in the nation’s capital. This is the 50th anniversary of that historic event when Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered his famous “I Have a Dream” speech.
