Documentary Film Screening | The March

Event time: 
Saturday, October 19, 2019 - 2:00pm

This critically acclaimed documentary commemorates the fiftieth anniversary of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, one of the largest civil protests in American history. Largely remembered for Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech, the march was a turning point in the American civil rights movement and helped to foster a sea change in public opinion on race and the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Directed by John Akomfrah and narrated by Denzel Washington (2013; not rated; 60 minutes).

This film is screened to complement the exhibitions Peterloo and Protest and Migrating Worlds: The Art of the Moving Image in Britain.
