March on Washington History

The Historic March on Washington Goes Interactive on Chrome

Fifty years ago today, Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his "I Have a Dream" speech before hundreds of thousands of fellow protestors sprawled across the National Mall. The historic event became known as the March on Washington For Jobs and Freedom, and a new collaboration between Google Chrome and the National Park Foundation highlights the events leading up to and following that monumental moment in American history.

Read the words of Dr. King's speech as you scroll through photos of former slaves, freedom fighters, protestors, and lawmakers who came out in support of the rally. The interactive website is responsive, and viewable on any device through Google Chrome. It's also touch-friendly: swipe left and right to view photos of the same time period, and swipe up and down to move forward or backwards in history. Tap the microphone in the top right corner to record your own voice reciting Dr. King's impactful words.
