The March (1964, 32 min, G)

Staff of the Embassy of the United States in Canberra explore American issues and culture on film.

The March takes the viewer behind the planning and mounting of the Civil Rights March on Washington in August 1963. The documentary footage shows the idealistic passion of both black and white organisers and marchers, and the difficulties in planning such a large-scale event. The film culminates with scenes at the Lincoln Memorial and Martin Luther King Junior's 'I Have a Dream' speech.
