Memorial Bridge March to Honor 60th Anniversary of March on Washington Led by Dr. King

Sixty years ago this month, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. spoke of freedom for the nation’s Black population ‘from the prodigious hilltops of New Hampshire’ following hundreds of years of enslavement.

The civil rights leader’s words were delivered from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in his famed ‘I Have a Dream’ speech in Washington in 1963.

The Black Heritage Trail of New Hampshire is holding a public silent march over the Memorial Bridge on August 26 in honor of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.

The public is invited to attend.
