WASHINGTON (AP) — Numerous exhibits and programs in the nation’s capital will allow visitors to retrace the historic steps of the 1963 March on Washington 50 years later.
Students took a prominent role in the civil rights movement in the early 1960s, leading up to the march. Their role is the focus of a new exhibit that has opened at the Newseum, a museum about journalism and the First Amendment.
The exhibit, “Make Some Noise,” features a section of the original Woolworth’s lunch counter from Greensboro, N.C., where four black college students launched a sit-in movement after being denied service because of their race.
The Newseum also is launching a three-year changing exhibit “Civil Rights at 50,” which will be updated each year with key milestones in the civil rights movement.
