We Still Have A Dream - Jobs, Peace, Freedom

We Still Have A Dream

This poster was used on August 27, 1983 during the March on Washington. Usage allowed due to the courtesy of the National Afro-American Museum and Cultural Center. The year 1983, which was the twentieth anniversary of the March on Washington and Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “I Have A Dream” speech,  offered a chance to consider how far African Americans had come in those two decades, while also providing the opportunity to rally for new battles around race. A diverse coalition of 250,000 Americans gathered.  More than 700 groups with a wide range of political and social agendas came to Washington demanding everything from government job programs to a nuclear freeze to gay rights. But their unifying theme, aside from the march's official call for "Jobs, Peace and Freedom," was unquestionably the goal of ousting President Reagan
