Home> 50th Anniversary March on Washington
The King Center and Discovery Education invite high school students across our nation to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the historic March on Washington. Hear from legendary civil rights activists as they recount their personal stories of 50 years of struggle, and together we can both celebrate the activism of the past and inspire the activism of the present.

Experience a two-hour virtual field trip that brings together the voices of civil rights activists who changed our world and the experiences of leaders who are spearheading critical issues facing our nation today.
