March on Washington: The Tampa-Hillsborough County public libraries are creating a video history of local residents who participated in the historic 1963 March on Washington.

The video histories will then be featured along with an afternoon of freedom songs at the West Tampa Branch Library on Saturday, Aug. 24 at 2:30 p.m.

The March on Washington, which took place on Aug. 28, 1963, was highlighted by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech, and still remains one of the largest political rallies for human rights in United States history. For more information, contact Stacey Jurewicz at (813) 273-3652.
