                  My family and I went to Washington, D.C. for the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington on August 24, 2013. I decided to interview people while I was there because I am really interested in civil rights and wanted to know why people came to the march. All together I interviewed 18 people. This film is a collection of my favorite interviews. I was looking for people who were to the point and who offered unique opinions of why they came. ~Henry
