Near the bottom of the front page is a six column headline concerning this historic Civil Rights March on Washington, D.C. with: "100,000 Turn Out For Capital March Before Noon" with subheads and related photo. It was at this march where Martin Luther King, Jr., gave his immortal "I have a dream..." speech (not included here). A rare same-day report of this significant event as most newspapers reported it on the 29th.
Complete with 36 pages, light toning and a little wear at the margins, generally nice.
