Our first hour will include an encore presentation of a special edition of The Sounds of Lost Television from August 2013, in which Phil Gries presented audio highlights of how network television and network radio covered The March on Washington. The day on which more than 200,000 Americans of every age, race and religion came to Washington, D.C. to support the passage of the landmark Civic Rights Bill, the March on Washington also marked the day on which Dr. Martin Luther King delivered his now iconic “I Have a Dream” speech.
Featuring audio from Phil’s private collection, this special program includes archive comments from such luminaries as author James Baldwin, event organizers Bayard Rustin and Philip Randolph (two members of the “Big Six”), ABC News correspondent Howard K. Smith, and Dr. King himself.
