The People’s Organization For Progress (POP) will have a rally to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the 1963 March On Washington on Wednesday, August 28, 2013, 5:00 pm at the Lincoln Statue located at the intersection of West Market Street and Springfield Avenue in downtown Newark, New Jersey.
The Great March On Washington For Jobs And Freedom, where Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Gave his famous “I Have A Dream” speech, was held August 28, 1963. The People’s Organization For Progress recently took three bus loads of people to the 50th Anniversary March On Washington that was held this past weekend.
However, POP State Chairman Lawrence Hamm stated,”We decided to have the rally because we felt it was important from a historical, spiritual, and organizational perspective to have an event in our local community to mark the anniversary on the actual date of the original march.”
