(RNS) Tens of thousands of people — led by clergy, civil rights veterans and activists — gathered in the nation’s capital on Aug. 24, 2013 to remember the 1963 March on Washington. They listened to speeches and prayers before they joined the National Action to Realize the Dream march, led by the Rev. Al Sharpton and Martin Luther King III, from the Lincoln Memorial to the Washington Monument. RNS Photos by Adelle M. Banks.
